Panaji: Goa`s former Tourism Minister
Fransisco `Mickey` Pacheco and his close aide Lyndon Monteiro,
wanted by the Crime Branch in the death of a 28-year-old woman
Nadia Torrado, are likely to move Supreme Court with the
anticipatory bail plea, sources said.
Goa`s sessions court and Panaji bench of Bombay High
Court have already rejected anticipatory bail plea of duo.
The possibility of Pacheco and Monteiro surrendering
to the Crime branch was expressed since last couple of days
after their anticipatory bail plea was rejected by High Court
Crime branch, which is investigating the case, has
accused Pacheco of culpable homicide while Monteiro is accused
of destroying the evidence.
Nadia had allegedly consumed poison on May 15 and she
was shifted to private hospitals in Goa, Mumbai and later at
Chennai where she breathed her last.
The postmortem report had suggested around 14 injuries
on her body, which had created suspicion around this case.
Pacheco was interrogated by Crime Branch on June 5 and
thereafter he went missing.
Monteiro too went in hiding after June 6 when he was
summoned by police.
