VASCO: Two accomplices of a self-styled godman from Karnataka who is wanted in connection with a rape of 19-year-old girl from Mangor-Hill, Vasco, have been arrested by Vasco police while the prime accused in the case has gone missing. 

The Vasco police team that had gone to Karnataka to arrest the godman returned empty handed on Saturday.

It may be recalled that the Vasco police had booked a self-styled godman from Kundapur in Karnataka on charges of allegedly raping a girl from Vasco in a house near Mapusa town on August 23. Police had also booked Santosh Kumbhar and Nikhil Chavan, two accomplices of the godman.

“So far, two accomplices of the godman Santosh Kumbhar and Nikhil Chavan have been arrested. Our team visited Kundapur in Karnataka and raided the residence of the godman but he was missing. The searches were also conducted at various other spots where he might probably be hiding, but we could not trace him and thus our team is returning to Goa. Also we have got some leads and we are confident that the godman will be arrested soon,” police said.
