Aires Rodrigues today cross examining the Special Investigation Team over the sloppy probe into the complaint against Mandrem MLA Jit Arolkar who is accused of having grabbed land admeasuring 1, 48,800.00 sq. mtrs situated at Village Dhargal in Pernem of which Mapusa based Rawloo Khalap is a co-owner.
