Panaji, Oct 30 (IANS) Goa's Tourism Minister Dilip Parulekar Tuesday said his department was in the process of recommending to the state home ministry that policemen should be posted at casino vessels to ensure "security of tourists".

"We have received requests from tourists visiting casinos that security should not be left to casino operators alone. Therefore, we want policemen on the vessels," Parulekar said.
