Goa Congress Responds After Rape Survivor Who Accused Leader Goes Missing

The "missing" rape victim who, in 2016, had accused Congress leader Atanasio Monserrate, now a candidate for the Panaji Assembly by-election on May 19, could have gone for a party or a wedding and may not be missing at all, Goa Congress legal cell Chairman Carlos Ferreira said here on Tuesday.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has urged the Pramod Sawant led-coalition government to track the victim at the earliest and ensure justice to her.
Mr Ferreira said the victim, a minor at the time of the alleged rape and now an adult, could have gone for a party or a wedding and could return to the shelter home in South Goa from where she went missing on April 28.
"She may have gone for a party or a wedding and return. The police cannot file a case of abduction because she is now a major. The case is motivated," he said.
Addressing the media at the party office, state Congress chief Girish Chodankar accused the BJP of allegedly facilitating the "sudden disappearance" of the victim to draw political mileage ahead of the by-election.
Nuns who run the shelter home, where the victim was being rehabilitated, had filed the missing complaint at the Verna police station in South Goa on April 28. On Monday, the police upgraded the missing complaint and added charges under Section 362 (abduction) of the Indian Penal Code. The police sources said the victim had "disappeared" on four earlier occasions, but had returned to the shelter home on each occasion.
