Minister Alemao’s nephew also named
Already, Rohit, son of education minister Atanasio Monserrate, is an accused in the rape case, reports M Nagvenkar.india Updated: Oct 24, 2008 01:05 IST
The mother of the 14-year-old German girl, who has been allegedly raped in Goa, has accused the kin of another powerful state politician, Public Works Department minister Churchill Alemao.
In a startling disclosure on Thursday, the counsel for the German family, Aires Rodrigues, claimed at a press conference at a city hotel that the minister’s nephew, 22-year-old Warren Alemao, had also sexually assaulted her minor girl.
<b1>Rodrigues also informed that he had already intimated the police about Warren, along with his photograph in a compromising position with the victim, which was put up on his Facebook profile.
Already, Rohit, son of education minister Atanasio Monserrate, is an accused in the case, which has created quite a few ripples ever since it was formally registered on October 14 –12 days after the incident.
The latest round of allegation comes as a blow to minister Alemao, who has so far been vocal against the police, claiming that Rohit Monserrate had been “unnecessarily victimised”.
Acting on Home Minister Ravi Naik’s directions, the police are already probing whether Churchill Alemao had given shelter to Rohit.
But Alemao claimed that he had not seen Rohit for the last four months.
Alemao got into a war of words recently with Rodrigues also, describing him as an “individual activist who worked for his own gains”.
Rodrigues in his press conference also informed that the Goa police had scanned the victim’s email-box, and were tracking emails which she had sent and received from the main accused Rohit Monserrate.
Meanwhile, apart from Rohit Monserrate and Warren Alemao, Roy Naik, the son of Home Minister Rave Naik has also been named by the British media linking him to the murders of two UK nationals namely Scarlette Keeling and Stephen Bennett.
