PANAJI: Johan Fernandes today appeared before the Goa Police in connection with a case filed against his father and pop singer Remo here for allegedly threatening a minor girl.
"Johan came to the police station this morning and appeared before us after we summoned him," said Agassaim police inspector Jivba Dalvi.
The fusion artist and singer has been booked for verbally abusing and threatening the girl by entering state-run Goa Medical College and Hospital here where she is undergoing treatment after being hit by the car driven by his son earlier this month.
Mapusa Police has booked Johan for rash driving while Agassaim Police booked Remo for abusing the girl.
Though no case has been registered against Jonah (at Agassaim), we questioned him to get more details about the incident, Dalvi said.
Remo has been summoned by the Goa Police, asking him to appear before the investigating officer this evening (around 4 PM) after he failed to do so on Monday on account of his Europe trip.
However, according to police sources, the 62-year-old singer, who has surrendered his Indian citizenship and become a Portuguese national, may not make it today even though police have already submitted the summons to the Foreigner Regional Registration Office (FRRO) which will forward it to the embassy.
The police complaint mentions that the girl was threatened by the singer in ward number 105 where she is believed to be treated.
Police have already recorded the statement of the girl and her elder sister, both natives of neighbouring Malvan town in Maharashtra.
The statement of the staff from GMCH who were on duty when incident happened has also been recorded.
On December 2, the girl was walking towards Old Goa to complete her vow to St Francis Xaviers when she was allegedly hit by the car of Fernandes's son Jonah, police said.
