The Goa police crime branch on Tuesday quizzed former state Tourism Minister Fransisco Pacheco's estranged wife Sara in connection with Nadia Torrado death case.
Sara, who is facing a divorce petition from Pacheco, arrived at the Crime Branch along with Auda Viegas, President of NGO 'Bailancho Ekvott'.
Sara is being questioned over the death of 28-year-old Nadia, who died after allegedly consumed rat poison on May 30.
Pacheco along with his close aide, Lyndon Monteiro, are accused in the case. The duo is absconding ever since the Crime branch accused them for Nadia's death.
Viegas said that Sara married Pacheco in 1999 and their marriage is on the rocks since 2004.
In December 2008, Sara filed a complaint of domestic violence against Pacheco claiming that he abused her often and threw her out of the house.
Subsequently, in January 2009, Pacheco filed a divorce petition seeking to separate from Sara.
Sara has also filed a complaint of forgery against Pacheco last year alleging that he sold all her flats and a vehicle, which was in her name.
Viegas said that Sara was not well and could not attend the summons, which were issued earlier.
