Panaji: The investigations in the death of
28-year-old Nadia Torrado, who died after allegedly consuming
poison, has found that there were 11 injury marks on her body.

"The postmortem conducted by a private hospital in
Chennai has reported 11 injury marks," a senior police officer
told PTI.

Goa Tourism Minister Fransisco Pacheco had resigned
from the Cabinet over allegations about his involvement in the
death of his close friend Torrado and was questioned by the
state police Crime Branch.

The minister is on the run and is likely to move for
anticipatory bail.

Torrado died on May 30 at Chennai after allegedly
consuming rat poison and thereafter a postmortem was conducted
on her body. The second autopsy was conducted when the body
was brought to Goa next day.
"Even in the second postmortem few bruises were seen,"
police said.

Sources said that the injury marks were seen on the
forearm, upper arm, thighs, legs, shoulder and chest during
the first autopsy.

The Crime Branch had on Friday said that they had not
received the postmortem report from a Chennai hospital where
Torrado had died.

Police had kept the autopsy findings under wraps and
have been interrogating Torrado`s family including her mother,
Sonia, who was questioned for the third day on Sunday.
Torrado`s house at Loutolim was also searched by the
police.
