Panaji: Smelling a conspiracy in the disappearance of the victim girl in the alleged rape case linked to Atanasio ‘Babush’ Monserrate, the Congress party candidate for the Panaji bypoll, the Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday said that it has already urged Chief Minister Pramod Sawant to track the victim at the earliest and ensure justice to her.

State BJP president Vinay Tendulkar told the pressmen that no one knows when the girl went missing from the rehabilitation centre at a convent in South Goa where she was lodged.

“Her disappearance gathers importance as the court is set to frame charges against Monserrate in the alleged minor rape case on June 3, during the next hearing in the matter,” he stated.

Speaking further, Tendulkar said that there is an urgent need on the part of police to search for the girl, as she is supposed to have left the convent without any money. He also brushed aside the allegation of the Congress party that the BJP could be behind the disappearance of the girl.

Meanwhile, stating that there is a conspiracy against its candidate for the Panaji bypoll Atanasio ‘Babush’ Monserrate, the Congress party on Tuesday said that the BJP could be behind the sudden disappearance of the victim girl.

The victim girl in the alleged rape case involving Monserrate is reported missing from the rehabilitation centre at a convent in South Goa.  

“It is quite possible that BJP, with the help of police, has hidden the girl and is trying to create a picture before the Panaji voters that the victim girl has been abducted,” said Goa Pradesh Congress Committee president Girish Chodankar while addressing a press conference in Panaji.

He said that in the past, the BJP has resorted to such tactics for political gains and claimed that their plan is to create an atmosphere of confusion amongst the voters before the May 19 bypoll.

“It’s a conspiracy. The girl went missing on April 28 but before this, she had also gone missing on four occasions which were never shared with the media. It is clear that in view of the bypoll, BJP is trying to create hype, as it will be a political disadvantage to Babush and advantage to all other candidates in the fray,” he said.

Even as Chodankar feared for the life of the victim girl, he said that the girl may return back to the shelter home after elections.

The GPCC president said that Chief Minister Pramod Sawant should be held responsible, as he also holds the charge of the Home department. He said the government and the police should trace the girl and provide protection to her at the earliest.

Chodankar also said that there could be a threat to her life. He said that BJP national president Amit Shah is capable of doing anything including anyone’s murder for political benefits.

Chairman of the party’s legal cell Adv Carlos Ferreira said that there was a possibility that the victim girl could have gone for a party or a wedding ceremony and may not be missing at all as projected by the police.
