India today has correctly pointed that the law and order in Goa is among the worst in India among small states . In 2018, the condition has worsened because the home minister was unwell for a long period of time.
One of the main problems of crime, robbery and burglary in goa, is that the robbers are using masterkeys which open all the locks and there is no trace like fingerprints, which most robbers are leaving, clearly indicating that highly sophisticated robbers are involved
The house of the domain investor in panaji, goa has been robbed, burgled, and trespassed repeatedly
Additionally the media has reported that a large number of offices in Mapusa, Margao and Vasco have also been robbed. For these robberies, there are no traces like fingerprints, which the police dogs can trace.
On 23 November 2018, there was another newspaper report of a series of robberies in a building in Mapusa . In addition to robbing the office of an advocate, 11 other offices in the same building were all robbed using masterkeys, Rs 1.6 lakh stolen
Masterkey robbers are very dangerous because the property owner can do almost nothing, yet they are allowed to roam around freely in goa . If the robber is using other methods , like breaking the lock, it is safer for the home or office owner, because breaking the lock is more time consuming and will create a noise, so the possibility of theft and burglary will be limited. These robbers will also not visit the house repeatedly, especially if they have not found anything.
Goa is the only state where masterkey robbers are roaming around freely in the state, yet the goan media is mostly silent on the masterkey robbers, indicating the widespread rot in the society and government at present
