PANAJI, India — An Indian official reported Wednesday that an Israeli accused of being part of a drug ring involving Indian police has jumped bail and disappeared from the popular Indian tourist resort region of Goa.

State Home Minister Ravi Naik said he ordered an inquiry into the disappearance of 36-year-old Yaniv Benaim, who has been missing for four weeks.

Benaim was arrested in March and charged with trafficking in narcotic drugs. A court freed him on bail in June, but ordered him to stay in Goa to assist the police investigation into the case.

Naik said Wednesday that seven local police officers have been arrested so far in the case.
