PANAJI: A woman riding a two-wheeler met with a road accident near Panaji bus stand this morning, leading to halting of Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar's motorcade which was passing by from there.

Parsekar, who was on his way to attend a function in his constituency Mandrem, instructed his securitymen to provide all help to the victim, who was later taken to Goa Medical College in a vehicle belonging to the CM's motorcade.
