PANJIM: Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) Goa Superintendent Jeetendra Ranjan has been booked on charges of alleged corruption. 

A case has been registered by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against Ranjan for having disproportionate assets worth Rs 26 lakh. A day before registering FIR, CBI had raided his house at Merces and the NCB office at Porvorim. Several crucial documents were seized, which would be used for investigation.  

"The assets are disproportionate to his actual source of income. We thus raided his office and residential premises and found important documents," said an official on the condition of anonymity. 

It is also likely that Ranjan might be summoned for interrogation. 

In October 2017, Ranjan and his team had drawn flak when he allegedly assaulted a beach shack owner and in return was beaten up by a mob. The NCB team without disclosing its identity had landed at the location in Pernem in a bid to crackdown on drug activity when the embarrassing incident unfolded. While the local police were unaware about such a raid, the official who had provided staff to assist the NCB, without informing his higher-ups, was suspended. Subsequently, there were cross complaints at the Pernem Police Station.
