Was surprised by court order to search my residence: Parrikar

"It was a surprise to me. I had moved into my official residence the earlier day," said Parrikar, responding to a question today.
The local court which was hearing the petition on Pacheco, who is missing after being convicted for slapping a government servant, had on April 23 ordered the search of 10, Akbar Road in New Delhi after social activist and lawyer Aires Rodrigues had petitioned the court against delay by police in tracking down the ex-minister.
The order came after Rodrigues submitted to the court that there was "information" that Pacheco was "hiding" at 10, Akbar Road. It was, however, stayed by a higher court in Goa the same day.
"The order is quashed... so I don't want to comment further. It is an issue which probably the investigating agency should work on. How does Defence Minister's residence come in the picture?," Parrikar replied.
"How do you stop people who have flight of imagination and slight bent of crooked behaviour?" Parrikar asked, making an apparent reference to Rodrigues who had moved the court seeking the order.
