Goa rape case: Minister's son surrenders

November 04, 2008 14:06 IST

Goa [Images] Education Minister Atanasio Monserratte's son Rohit, who allegedly raped a German minor girl, today surrendered before the Goa police.

The 21-year-old, accompanied by his father, arrived in a red beacon car and surrendered before Police Inspector Tushar Vernekar at Calangute police station.

Rohit was booked by Goa police on October 14 for allegedly raping the German girl and had gone missing after that.

He appeared before the police on November 1 to give his statement, a few hours before the 14-year-old German girl deposed before a magistrate after initial reluctance.

Police said that Rohit had not been arrested as the girl had not given her deposition till then.

A fresh warrant had been issued against Rohit yesterday but he could not be traced despite several searches throughout the day.

A police team had raided his residence at Talegaon.
