Panaji: A local court on Friday convicted
Goa`s "serial killer" Mahanand Naik for raping his wife`s
friend.

The quantum of sentence will be pronounced on Tuesday
by Additional District Judge Nutan Sardesai.
Naik (40) has been booked for allegedly killing 18
women over a period of 15 years.

He was nabbed by police after the victim, in her
twenties, lodged a complaint of rape against him in April
2009.

The former autorickshaw driver later reportedly
confessed to killing several women by luring them with
marriage proposal.
The rape victim told the police that Naik had been
blackmailing her with semi-nude pictures of hers and sexually
assaulted her for over three years.

He has been acquitted in three murder cases, while
police were in the process of filing chargesheets in the
others.
