New Delhi, Oct 15 (UNI) National Commission for Women chairperson Girija Vyas today said the Commission has taken suo motu cognisance of the rape of German minor girl in Goa, allegedly by the son of state education minister Atanasio Monserratte.

She said,''The Commission has taken cognisance of it and will write to the state authorities on the issue.'' Rohit, the Minister's son, who has been accused by a German researcher of raping her minor daughter in Goa, has been absconding since October 2. The police have booked him on charges of raping, outraging modesty, abetting the crime and sending lewd messages to the girl. They have also charged Monserratte with abetting the crime.

Calling upon states to frame separate laws to deal with tourism-related crimes, she said just as the Railway have a separate police force, a dedicated force and laws should be framed to address the concerns of tourists.
