The special investigation team (SIT) set up to probe dubious  land deals including 

sale deeds and transfer (mutation) effected a  second arrest in the case related to the Assagao parcel of land on  Wednesday.

St Inez resident, Mohammad Suhail (46) was arrested by the  SIT for his alleged involvement in the same case of alleged land grab  of Assagao in which Gogol resident Vikrant Shetty was arrested on Sunday  last.

Shetty had been arrested on Sunday and a Mapusa court had  remanded him to five days police custody. Investigations have provided  the SIT leads into several other cases of fraudulent transfer land in  North Goa.

Meanwhile Revenue Minister Atanasio (Babush) Monserrate  has pledged total co-operation from his department with the ongoing  investigations in the alleged land grabbing cases.

Monserrate said  officers of the Revenue department will fully cooperate and provide all  documents asked for by the investigators.
