Lady phoned her husband that a man had pushed her and touched her breast at the floats. The husband immediately arrived at the scene with three friends of his and assaulted the boy who was identified as Tony Fernandes.

MARGAO: Colva Police have booked two cases of rioting and one case of molestation against 12 persons hailing from Benaulim and Colva following a fight between the two groups that originated at the Benaulim floats and ended at Colva with five two wheelers being burnt to cinders.

On Tuesday at around 5.30 pm when the float parade was on at Benaulim, one lady phoned her husband and told him that one man had pushed her and touched her breast at the floats. The husband immediately arrived at the scene with three friends of his and began assaulting the boy who was identified as Tony Fernandes.

Tony was beaten so badly that he was rushed to Hospicio in an unconscious state. As the lady had lodged a complaint against Tony, police have booked a case under Section 354 of the Indian Penal Code for using criminal force against a woman.

Around 10 youngsters from Benaulim later in the evening at around 8.30 pm came to Colva to the lady’s house to ask why she registered a complaint against Tony who was unconscious. However, at that time since it was the last day of Carnival some youngsters from Colva were at the house having a party.

On seeing this group of people from Benaulim, the Colva youth got incensed and there was fight between the two groups. In the bargain five two wheelers four belonging to the Benaulim youth and one belonging to a person from Colva were totally burnt.

Colva police have booked two cases of rioting against the youth of Benaulim for going to Colva and also the people from Colva who went to Benaulim to assault Tony Fernandes.
