US tourist thanks Goa police for swift action; against her molestor !

A United States tourist who had posted on her facebook account how she was molested during her vacation in Goa has now conveyed her gratitude to the Goa police after the accused was nabbed.

The victim hails from New York and had also given a detailed response to those who have questioned her story which was posted on Monday night and was shared more than 2,000 times.

She said that while she is still shaken by the events, she is happy to report this man (motorcycle taxi operator) was tracked and a formal report with the Goa police is being lodged tomorrow.

The victim, in an earlier post, had explained how she was molested by one Isidore Fernandes, a resident of Anjuna, when he was ferrying her on his motorcycle taxi during the Republic Day weekend in Goa.

She had also uploaded the accused’s photograph along with the post.

Hours after the post was uploaded, Goa police arrested Fernandes, who was subsequently booked for assault, using criminal force against a woman and sexual harassment sections of the Indian Penal Code.
