A local trial court on Thursday acquitted one of Goa's most popular entertainers and musicians Remo Fernandes, who was booked for allegedly verbally abusing a minor girl.

Speaking to reporters, the Bollywood singer's lawyer Rajeev Gomes said that Fernandes has been acquitted of the charges framed under section 8 r/w 2 (m) of the Goa Children's Act, a special legislation which specifically deals with crimes against children in Goa.

"The Children's Court of Goa has today found my client Remo Fernandes not guilty and honourably acquitted him of all charges levelled against him. Justice delivered," Gomes said, after the trial court delivered its verdict earlier on Thursday.

Fernandes had been charged with verbally abusing a minor girl, who was walking to the Old Goa Church complex as part of an annual pilgrimage when a car allegedly driven by Remo's son knocked her down on December 15, 2015.

The victim, from Malvan in Maharashtra, complained to the Goa Police that after she was admitted to the Goa Medical College located near Panaji, Remo had met her and after an altercation, allegedly verbally abused her.
