ST ANDRE: St Andre MLA Viresh Borkar has denied pressurising the victim of the police in the case against his brother.
Borkar said “I am a law abiding citizen and will never support any wrong doings even by my family members or party member”.
He said that the issue is the outcome of misunderstanding and law will take its own course in the FIR filed against his brother and two others for harassing and assaulting a woman.
Aggacaim police had filed FIR against Saish Borkar for allegedly assaulting a woman from Azzosim and also trespassing into her home.
A complaint to this effect was filed against Borkar on Nov 21. Borkar allegedly followed the 36-year-old woman, entered her house and assaulted her.
“We have issued a notice to Saeish to join the investigation,” Police said.
Police also said that the woman was staying alone in Goa, while her husband is in London for work.
He said that both were known to each other for a long time and were in touch with each other.
