RAPE VICTIM'S VERSION WILL PREVAIL: CM SAYS: The Chief Minister Manohar
Parrikar today (May 20) said the police would strictly go by the version of
the victim of the alleged gang-rape at Government Art College, Altinho,
here, unless concrete evidence proves otherwise. Replying to queries on the
gang-rape case, the chief minister said the report submitted yesterday by
the five-member panel of doctors is not conclusive towards the charge of
rape
Replying to specific questions Mr Parrikar claimed that his government
has taken a line of investigation which is solely based on the premise that
the version of the victim is true.

CM URGED TO EXPEDITE PROBE: The Goa State Commission for Women met the
Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar to discuss the case of the sexual assault
in the Art College Campus and urged him for a sensitive and expeditious
investigation in the case. The Commission impressed on the Chief Minister
that character assassination of the victim should stop and personal
information of the victim and her family should not be made public. (H)

COLLEGE GANG-RAPE SCENE: The Goa College of Art has always been dogged by
controversy as far back as we can remember. There has always been savage
infighting among the staff amidst allegations that successive principals
have been political appointees
The principal however, told the Herald team
that the police had not interrogated any of the faculty members or even the
watchman on duty when the incident happened
In the wake of the alleged
gang-rape those familiar with the college have been spreading rumours that
the girl was a habitual smoker and that she was highly sociable implying
that she was very popular with the boys.

COMPLAINT FILED AGAINST KHALAP IN BANK CASE: The recovery officer of the
Mapusa Urban Co-operative Bank, Mr Mohandas V Ramdas, has filed a complaint
against the former chairman of the board of directors of the bank, Mr
Ramakant D Khalap, on May 27 for allegedly entering into a criminal
conspiracy with another bank official and cheating the bank to the tune of
Rs 4.7 crore. The complaint is part of continued efforts by officials of
the MUCB also known as Bank of Goa Ltd, Mapusa, to make recovery of loans
disbursed and to put the bank back on the rails.
(http://www.navhindtimes.com/stories.php?part=news&Story_ID=053023)

KHALAP DENIES FRESH CHARGES: Khalap categorically denied the fresh charges
made against him in a criminal complaint filed against him with the Crime
Branch of Goa police. He alleged that complaint in question is a part of a
deep rooted conspiracy to annihilate his unblemished social and political
career spanning over more than three decades. (GT)

OPENING OF NEW CITY MARKET: The completion of the two-storey well-equipped
new corporation market complex at Panjim corporation market seems to have
come as a relief for the shopkeepers who were running their businesses with
hardly any facilities.The nearly 435 existing vendors/shopkeepers would be
shifted to phase I of the new market complex on its inauguration by the
Governor, Kidar Nath Sahani on May 30. Some 1430 traders are expected to
operate from the new market on completion.

MISHAP CLAIMS ONE LIFE: A 29-year-old man from Deusua in Chinchinim
succumbed to injuries when his motorcycle (GA-02-P-1559) and a Maruti van
collided with each other near the Chinchinim market on Thursday evening.
DySP Tony Fernandes informed that the accident occurred at about 3.50 pm.
Cuncolim Police Station in-charge Manjunath Dessai who rushed to the spot
said the youth, Melroy Antonio Furtado, was rushed to Hospicio hospital,
here, by the same van which was involved in the accident, but the victim
succumbed to injuries before his admission. (H)

HSSC EXAMS RESULTS: The results of the HSSC examinations conducted by the
Goa State of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education will be declared at
the conference hall of the Directorate of Education, Panaji, at 11 am
today. The results will also be available on the website
www.goaresults.nic.in simultaneously. (GT)

STATEHOOD UNIMPORTANT: In other States in the country Statehood Day is a
major cause for celebration and jubilation. All other States which achieved
State hood later and not at the time the States were first formed, regard
it as day when their ethnic identity was recognised and acknowledged
Goa's
elevation to Statehood was inextricably linked to the struggle to get
Konkani recognised as the official language of the State. The Centre
legitimately argued that the basis for the division of States was
linguistic. The establishment of Konkani as the Official Language was a
pre-requisite. Which was not easy as there was a very strong pro-Marathi
and indeed pro-Maharashtra lobby which despite the Opinion Poll
verdict
(Edit in Herald)
(http://oherald.com/newherald/newsEDN.asp?qId=772&qSec=EDN&qNType=R)

SUPPORTERS OF GOA-MAHARASHTRA MERGER OPPOSED STATEHOOD: Reservations as
regards demanding statehood for Goa were also looming their heads in
various corners whenever issue arose. But those who had these inferiority
complex attitude were the ones with a confused and irrational mind. This
included a section of congressmen themselves
Goa is still capable of rising
to the heights. Its secular outlook should remain undisturbed
(Shantaram
Naik in Herald)
(http://oherald.com/newherald/newsBRN.asp?qId=2958&qSec=BRN&qNType=R)

27 HURT IN KTC BUS MISHAP: As many as 27 passengers in a Kadamba Transport
Corporation (KTC) bus en route to Gokarn-Karnataka were injured in a road
mishap near the Bhumipurush temple at Gulem-Canacona on Thursday. Canacona
police said the KTC bus (GA-01-X-0280) collided with an oncoming truck. The
passengers were rushed to the Canacona Community Health Centre and 16 were
discharged after treatment. The 11 passengers admitted at the hospicio
Hospital have been identified as Nicolao Fernandes, Krishna Naik, Siddhesh
Nowar, Vijay Nowar, Sneha Nowar, Sumangala Dessai, Saroj K Nowar, Kamlakar
Nowar, Ashwini Bhat, Nayan Iregadde and Geeta Nayak. (H)

HOUSE BURGLED: Unknown culprits entered the house of Pundalik Kerkar of

MAHITI GHARS AS STATEHOOD DAY GIFT: The secretary for Information
Technology (IT), Mr Bhupinder Bhalla, said that two Mahiti Ghars or
information kiosks would be opened in the state on May 30, on the occasion
of the Goa Statehood Day, as a part of the e-initiatives of the government.

CARITAS ANNOUNCES TRAINING COURSES: Caritas-Goa has announced training
courses of six months and one year duration accredited by NIOS and
recognized by government of India in word processing, cutting, tailoring
and dress-making, carpentry, catering management, bakery and confectionery
and plumbing, for youth aged 15 years and above. Contact 2226509/2285743. (GT)

FACING HARSH REALITY: The news of the alleged gang-rape of a student from
the Goa College of Art is shocking. Goa seems to be fast becoming an unsafe
place for women. Although I strongly condemn the incident, I feel that
young girls should dress up modestly so that they do not attract the
attention of anti-social elements. Today it is a common sight to see most
teenage girls wearing provocative outfits which they consider fashionable.
They take pride in keeping pace with the latest fashion trends.
Unfortunately, this proves to be their undoing. There is a small section of
the male population which views women as objects of lust. They get
titillated when they see women in tight-fitting outfits, short tops and
skirts and so on. These elements take advantage of women when they get an
opportunity. (MERZINA CLEMENT, Marcela, in NT)

the victim of the alleged gang-rape at Government Art College, Altinho,
here, unless concrete evidence proves otherwise. Replying to queries on the

has taken a line of investigation which is solely based on the premise that
the version of the victim is true.

CM URGED TO EXPEDITE PROBE: The Goa State Commission for Women met the
Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar to discuss the case of the sexual assault
in the Art College Campus and urged him for a sensitive and expeditious
investigation in the case. The Commission impressed on the Chief Minister
that character assassination of the victim should stop and personal
information of the victim and her family should not be made public. (H)

COLLEGE GANG-RAPE SCENE: The Goa College of Art has always been dogged by
controversy as far back as we can remember. There has always been savage
infighting among the staff amidst allegations that successive principals
have been political appointees
The principal however, told the Herald team
that the police had not interrogated any of the faculty members or even the
watchman on duty when the incident happened
In the wake of the alleged
gang-rape those familiar with the college have been spreading rumours that
the girl was a habitual smoker and that she was highly sociable implying
that she was very popular with the boys.

deep rooted conspiracy to annihilate his unblemished social and political
career spanning over more than three decades. (GT)

shifted to phase I of the new market complex on its inauguration by the

STATEHOOD UNIMPORTANT: In other States in the country Statehood Day is a
major cause for celebration and jubilation. All other States which achieved
State hood later and not at the time the States were first formed, regard
it as day when their ethnic identity was recognised and acknowledged
Goa's

RAPE VICTIM'S VERSION WILL PREVAIL: CM SAYS: The Chief Minister Manohar
Parrikar today (May 20) said the police would strictly go by the version of
the victim of the alleged gang-rape at Government Art College, Altinho,
here, unless concrete evidence proves otherwise. Replying to queries on the
gang-rape case, the chief minister said the report submitted yesterday by
the five-member panel of doctors is not conclusive towards the charge of
rape
Replying to specific questions Mr Parrikar claimed that his government
has taken a line of investigation which is solely based on the premise that
the version of the victim is true.
(http://oherald.com/newherald/newsGN.asp?qId=802&qSec=GN&qNType=R)

CM URGED TO EXPEDITE PROBE: The Goa State Commission for Women met the
Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar to discuss the case of the sexual assault
in the Art College Campus and urged him for a sensitive and expeditious
investigation in the case. The Commission impressed on the Chief Minister
that character assassination of the victim should stop and personal
information of the victim and her family should not be made public. (H)

COLLEGE GANG-RAPE SCENE: The Goa College of Art has always been dogged by
controversy as far back as we can remember. There has always been savage
infighting among the staff amidst allegations that successive principals
have been political appointees
The principal however, told the Herald team
that the police had not interrogated any of the faculty members or even the
watchman on duty when the incident happened
In the wake of the alleged
gang-rape those familiar with the college have been spreading rumours that
the girl was a habitual smoker and that she was highly sociable implying
that she was very popular with the boys.

COMPLAINT FILED AGAINST KHALAP IN BANK CASE: The recovery officer of the
Mapusa Urban Co-operative Bank, Mr Mohandas V Ramdas, has filed a complaint
against the former chairman of the board of directors of the bank, Mr
Ramakant D Khalap, on May 27 for allegedly entering into a criminal
conspiracy with another bank official and cheating the bank to the tune of
Rs 4.7 crore. The complaint is part of continued efforts by officials of
the MUCB also known as Bank of Goa Ltd, Mapusa, to make recovery of loans
disbursed and to put the bank back on the rails.
(http://www.navhindtimes.com/stories.php?part=news&Story_ID=053023)

KHALAP DENIES FRESH CHARGES: Khalap categorically denied the fresh charges
made against him in a criminal complaint filed against him with the Crime
Branch of Goa police. He alleged that complaint in question is a part of a
deep rooted conspiracy to annihilate his unblemished social and political
career spanning over more than three decades. (GT)

OPENING OF NEW CITY MARKET: The completion of the two-storey well-equipped
new corporation market complex at Panjim corporation market seems to have
come as a relief for the shopkeepers who were running their businesses with
hardly any facilities.The nearly 435 existing vendors/shopkeepers would be
shifted to phase I of the new market complex on its inauguration by the
Governor, Kidar Nath Sahani on May 30. Some 1430 traders are expected to
operate from the new market on completion.

MISHAP CLAIMS ONE LIFE: A 29-year-old man from Deusua in Chinchinim
succumbed to injuries when his motorcycle (GA-02-P-1559) and a Maruti van
collided with each other near the Chinchinim market on Thursday evening.
DySP Tony Fernandes informed that the accident occurred at about 3.50 pm.
Cuncolim Police Station in-charge Manjunath Dessai who rushed to the spot
said the youth, Melroy Antonio Furtado, was rushed to Hospicio hospital,
here, by the same van which was involved in the accident, but the victim
succumbed to injuries before his admission. (H)

HSSC EXAMS RESULTS: The results of the HSSC examinations conducted by the
Goa State of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education will be declared at
the conference hall of the Directorate of Education, Panaji, at 11 am
today. The results will also be available on the website
www.goaresults.nic.in simultaneously. (GT)

STATEHOOD UNIMPORTANT: In other States in the country Statehood Day is a
major cause for celebration and jubilation. All other States which achieved
State hood later and not at the time the States were first formed, regard
it as day when their ethnic identity was recognised and acknowledged
Goa's
elevation to Statehood was inextricably linked to the struggle to get
Konkani recognised as the official language of the State. The Centre
legitimately argued that the basis for the division of States was
linguistic. The establishment of Konkani as the Official Language was a
pre-requisite. Which was not easy as there was a very strong pro-Marathi
and indeed pro-Maharashtra lobby which despite the Opinion Poll
verdict
(Edit in Herald)
(http://oherald.com/newherald/newsEDN.asp?qId=772&qSec=EDN&qNType=R)

SUPPORTERS OF GOA-MAHARASHTRA MERGER OPPOSED STATEHOOD: Reservations as
regards demanding statehood for Goa were also looming their heads in
various corners whenever issue arose. But those who had these inferiority
complex attitude were the ones with a confused and irrational mind. This
included a section of congressmen themselves
Goa is still capable of rising
to the heights. Its secular outlook should remain undisturbed
(Shantaram
Naik in Herald)
(http://oherald.com/newherald/newsBRN.asp?qId=2958&qSec=BRN&qNType=R)

27 HURT IN KTC BUS MISHAP: As many as 27 passengers in a Kadamba Transport
Corporation (KTC) bus en route to Gokarn-Karnataka were injured in a road
mishap near the Bhumipurush temple at Gulem-Canacona on Thursday. Canacona
police said the KTC bus (GA-01-X-0280) collided with an oncoming truck. The
passengers were rushed to the Canacona Community Health Centre and 16 were
discharged after treatment. The 11 passengers admitted at the hospicio
Hospital have been identified as Nicolao Fernandes, Krishna Naik, Siddhesh
Nowar, Vijay Nowar, Sneha Nowar, Sumangala Dessai, Saroj K Nowar, Kamlakar
Nowar, Ashwini Bhat, Nayan Iregadde and Geeta Nayak. (H)

HOUSE BURGLED: Unknown culprits entered the house of Pundalik Kerkar of
Gaunsavaddo, Mapusa, and committed a theft of gold ornaments valued at
around Rs.60,000 and cash Rs.700. The theft occurred between 9.30 am and
11.30 am while the inmates of the house were away. (GT)

MAHITI GHARS AS STATEHOOD DAY GIFT: The secretary for Information
Technology (IT), Mr Bhupinder Bhalla, said that two Mahiti Ghars or
information kiosks would be opened in the state on May 30, on the occasion
of the Goa Statehood Day, as a part of the e-initiatives of the government.
"GoaNET, the wide area network which controls the Mahiti Ghars and links
all government departments and offices will be inaugurated by the Chief
Minister, Mr Manohar Parrikar," he added.

CARITAS ANNOUNCES TRAINING COURSES: Caritas-Goa has announced training
courses of six months and one year duration accredited by NIOS and
recognized by government of India in word processing, cutting, tailoring
and dress-making, carpentry, catering management, bakery and confectionery
and plumbing, for youth aged 15 years and above. Contact 2226509/2285743. (GT)

FACING HARSH REALITY: The news of the alleged gang-rape of a student from
the Goa College of Art is shocking. Goa seems to be fast becoming an unsafe
place for women. Although I strongly condemn the incident, I feel that
young girls should dress up modestly so that they do not attract the
attention of anti-social elements. Today it is a common sight to see most
teenage girls wearing provocative outfits which they consider fashionable.
They take pride in keeping pace with the latest fashion trends.
Unfortunately, this proves to be their undoing. There is a small section of
the male population which views women as objects of lust. They get
titillated when they see women in tight-fitting outfits, short tops and
skirts and so on. These elements take advantage of women when they get an
opportunity. (MERZINA CLEMENT, Marcela, in NT)

VASCO MERSMERISE CHURCHILL: Arlem Breweries sponsored Vasco SC scored an

positional play and speed, Mahindra United (Mumbai) carved out a deserving

2nd Junior (U-19) football tournament for U-19 teams of First Division NFL
Clubs at Duler grounds, here today. All goals were scored in the first
