The ongoing Goa Legislative Assembly session witnessed high drama on Thursday when a suspicious person was apprehended after a chase by security personnel in the House complex here.

The person was later identified to be the one about whom the House had deliberated yesterday during Question Hour.

He was apprehended after a chase by a group of policemen. He is accused of illegally filling the land at Anjuna village.

"The person was arrested at the main gate when he was trying to run away," said Michael Lobo, BJP legislator who had spotted him in the complex.

Lobo said the accused has several cases booked against him.

"When he saw me, he started running. I alerted the police and he was apprehended," the legislator said.

Lobo claimed he was assaulted by the same person in December last year.

The legislator said he has already filed a formal complaint with the Speaker to tighten security around the complex and disallow people without the valid passes. is now on Telegram & also Youtube. Kindly subscribe for free & remain updated.
