A Goa court on Thursday framed charges against BJP MLA Atanasio Monserratte for allegedly raping a 16-year-old girl. The trial in the case will begin on October 17. 55-year-old Monserratte, who is the MLA from Panaji, has been booked for rape and under provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act. In a statement to police in 2016, the victim, then aged 16, accused Monserratte of drugging and sexually assaulting her. She also alleged that her mother 'sold' her to Monserratte for 50 lakh rupees. The MLS was arrested in 2016 and is currently out on bail
