Calls on North Goa SP demanding action against websites tarnishing Goa’s image; Writes to Principals of 10 colleges requesting them to take preventive steps

PANJIM: The Goa Women’s Forum called on North Goa Superintendent of Police Chandan Chowdhary demanding action against the escort service websites that have been tarnishing Goa’s image labeling it as sex tourism.

The delegation submitted a detailed memorandum pointing out that the situation has reached such proportions that the websites are selling sex services by offering college girls, housewives and have not even spared religious places.

GWF Convener Lorna Fernandes said they explained the background of the growth of sex tourism in Goa over the last 30 years and pointed out that various government agencies adopted a lethargic attitude to the situation although the warning signals were given during the protest against the Tourism Master Plan in 1987.

The delegation stated that these websites portray that college girls and housewives are available as call girls from as far as Bicholim, and Arambol and Mandrem in Pernem. “This situation has caused fear and anxiety in the minds of people in North District and there is a need for urgent action in the matter. The modus operandi is to lure girls from the locality of the colleges and Goa University by creating an impression that students are easily available and that they can make a lot of money,” she alleged.
