Paji, May 12: A local court on Thursday extended by four days the police custody of Goa MLA Atasio Monserrate, accused of ‘buying’ a minor girl and repeatedly raping her. The court also extended the custody of the girl’s mother by a similar duration. The woman is accused of selling her minor daughter to Monserrate in March through an alleged pimp Rosy Ferros, who too has been arrested.
