Days after he was quizzed by police in connection with the death of his "close" female friend, former Goa tourism minister Fransisco Pacheco today applied for anticipatory bail.

The 46-year-old NCP legislator, who is untraceable ever since he resigned from the Cabinet on June 5 after his name cropped up in the death case, moved the bail application in the Sessions Court here through his lawyer.

28-year-old Nadia Torrado died on May 30 at Chennai after allegedly consuming rat poison. Pacheco was questioned by crime branch on June 4 after women organisations alleged his involvement in the death.

The former minister has denied the charge.
