PANAJI: A 32-year-old masseuse in Goa was arrested on fees of rape after a British tourist accused him of inserting his finger into her during a therapeutic massage, police stated on Tuesday.

The incident occurred on June 2 morning after the lady and her husband returned from a trek in Arambol village, a preferred tourist vacation spot 40km north of state capital Panaji. She filed a grievance with the Pernem Police on June 6, Monday.

A probe group led by inspector Vikram Naik arrested the person on rape fees.

Police recognized the suspect as Joel D’Souza, 32, a neighborhood resident.

According to her grievance, the lady and her husband went on a trek to the Arambol freshwater lake, situated a brief distance from the primary Arambol seaside. The suspect was half of a bunch that was providing therapeutic massage providers to vacationers.

During the therapeutic massage, she alleged that D’Souza inappropriately touched her breasts and inserted his finger into her vagina, police stated. The incident occurred within the presence of her husband who didn’t realise his spouse’s discomfort.

She spoke about it to him later.

The couple filed a proper grievance after consulting their household and the native British excessive fee office.

Under Section 375 (b) of the Indian Penal Code, a person is claimed to commit rape if he “inserts, to any extent, any object or a part of the body, not being the penis, into the vagina, the urethra or anus of a woman or makes her to do so with him or any other person”.
