GOA: Three persons were arrested by Calangute police for allegedly looting and assaulting four Bengaluru tourists. Calangute police said Girish Narasimha Shetty, a native of Bengaluru, lodged a complaint that on Tuesday at around 2.30pm he was approached by a tout at the Dolphin Circle in Calangute. The tout, Lalsab Ameen Najab, a resident of Mapusa, offered to arrange accomodation at a place in Porvorim for Shetty and three of his friends. Accordingly, they followed Nadaf, who rode a scooter, in their car to a villa in Porvorim.
Once inside the villa, the tourists were allegedly assaulted by three persons, identified as Manish Rauthan, Jaideep Duhal and Anshuman Sharma, who forcibly removed Rs 1,500 cash from their wallets. They also took away an ATM card and tapped Rs 8,000 using a card swipe machine. Police traced three accused to the villa in Porvorim where they were running a ‘wellness spa’, while the tout is absconding.
