Last month, a missing person complaint was lodged and later on May 10, the police registered an FIR for offence of abduction against an unknown person, Verna police inspector Sandesh Chodankar had said Monday.
Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Goa BJP chief Vinay Tendulkar expressed concern about the missing woman and said the state government should trace her since she was an important witness in the Monserratte case.
The decision on framing charges against Monserratte will be delivered on June 3 by local court.
"Her disappearance during such a crucial time is a cause of concern," Tendulkar said.
The Congress, meanwhile, blamed the state government for the woman going missing.
"Maybe the woman has gone for a wedding, maybe she has gone for a party, you never know or maybe genuinely she is missing. We don't know," Fereira said.
