Panaji: The local court will give its final verdict on the charges of rape levied against serial killer Mahanand Naik on October 1.

The district court in Panaji has heard the arguments in the rape case, which first brought Mahanand in the eyes of Ponda police way back in 2009.

Subsequent investigations had revealed that 40-year-old Mahanand was involved in series of killings.

Mahanand was accused of blackmailing and raping his wife's friend, a college going girl, for over three years in the town of Shiroda, 40 kms away from Panaji.

The complaint was filed with Ponda police in the last week of April 2009.

During the custodial interrogation, Mahanand had confessed of killing around 18 gullible women by luring them in love.

According to the police, the killer used to go on a date with them to secluded place and kill them with their dupatta.

The alleged killer has been acquitted by the court in three out of 18 murder cases in which the Judge ruled that there was no evidence against the accused.
