Panaji: Goa Police has summoned singer Remo Fernandes to appear before it tomorrow for allegedly threatening a minor girl at state-run Goa Medical College and Hospital, where she was undergoing treatment after being hit by his son's car.
The Agassaim Police visited Remo's residence last night, but when they did not find him there, the summon was pasted on his door.
"Police visited his place at Siolim, but he was not at home. His servant told us that he is not at home. We have pasted summons on his door," police inspector Jivba Dalvi told PTI today.
Remo has been asked to remain present at the Agassaim Police Station tomorrow at 10 AM, he said.
The Agassaim Police had earlier booked the 62-year-old artist under stringent Section 8 of Goa Children's Act on the girl's complaint.
According to Dalvi, the singer allegedly threatened the girl on December 3 at ward number 105 of Goa Medical College and Hospital.
On December 2, the girl, a native of Malvan town in Maharashtra, was walking towards Old Goa to complete her vow to St Francis Xaviers when she was allegedly hit by the car of Remo's son Jonah, police said.
Jonah was immediately booked for rash driving.
Police have already recorded the statement of the girl and her elder sister.
The statements of Goa Medical College and Hospital's staff, who were on duty when the alleged incident happened, have also been recorded, police added.
Remo was not available for his comments on the issue.
