Atanasio Monserrate, the expelled Congress legislator who was booked on Wednesday for allegedly raping a minor girl in March, surrendered before the Goa-India Police on Thursday.

The Goa Police has arrested Monserrate also known as Babush, who was expelled by the Congress and is now an independent legislator.

The former education minister has been charged with human trafficking and rape.

The case was transferred to the women`s police station, which functions under the crime branch, last night.

In a statement before the police, the 16-year-old victim from Nepal said that her step mother and another woman sold her to Monserratte.

She further alleged that Monserrate spiked her drink and then raped her at his bungalow. "The next morning I woke up without my clothes, covered in blood, he was sitting without his clothes on," the teen has told a committee, Indian media reports.

Police are conducting further investigations into the incident.
