Panaji, (IANS) A suspended mines department employee had masterminded the killing of a small time real estate dealer, who was found dead with his throat slit March 21, Goa Police claimed Tuesday.

Robert Gonsalves, a suspended draftsman in the state government’s mines department, had conspired to murder Hassan Khan and had roped in a Karnataka-based contract killer and several others to commit the murder, police said.

“We have arrested six people, including Anil Bhoe, Rai Patil, Shivaji Patil and Arun Patil, all from Belgaum,” the police spokesperson said.

Gonsalves was suspended from service following his role in the multi-billion rupees mining scam which was exposed by the Justice M.B. Shah Commission report.

Hassan was found with his throat slit in his car at a desolate place in Bambolim, on the outskirts of the capital March 21.
