Panaji: Cops in state to be trained for better treatment of tourists

Daijiworld Media Network - Panaji

Panaji, Jun 23: In a bid to sensitize departments like Goa police and the transport department to treat tourists properly, the state government has decided to conduct workshops, transport minister Mauvin Godinho said.

"Earlier, they used to stop tourists everywhere and ask them for documents," Godinho said, adding that there were complaints that tourists were stopped and harassed. "The chief minister (Pramod Sawant) lectured them (government departments and Goa police) on how they should be more sensitive and understanding towards treating tourists arriving in the state."

Sawant met Goa police and transport officials over the inconvenience caused to tourists visiting Goa in their own vehicles.
