A close friend of Nadia Torrado's family on Monday revealed that Nadia had gone to the market and interacted with many people after she consumed poison on May 15.

The statement comes as a fresh revelation in the backdrop of arrest of Nadia's mother Sonia on Sunday, who was charged with abetting suicide of her daughter, culpable homicide and destruction of evidence.

"Nadia was in the market after 9.30 am and returned back home at around 11.50 am. She had interacted with many people including a newspaper vendor," Maria Mascarenhas, a close friend of Torrado family told reporters.

Mascarenhas is nursing Nadia's brother Konrad at Institute of Psychiatry and Human Behaviour after he went into depression following his mother's arrest.

Former Goa tourism minister Fransis Mickey Pacheco and Sonia were arrested by crime branch under charges of abetting Nadia's suicide, culpable homicide and destruction of evidence.

Nadia, who took poison on May 15, had died on May 30 after being treated at various hospitals in Goa, Thane (Mumbai) and Chennai.
