Panaji, Jan 6: In a significant development in the Russian Rape Case, accused John Fernandes surrenders before the Goa crime branch on Wednesday, Jan 6.

The Goa-based politician has been evading arrest after his anticipatory was rejected by the Bombay High Court in Dec 2009.

Fernandes, who has been accused of raping a Russian girl after spiking her drink, came out of hiding following a stern warning from the Supreme Court on Tuesday, Jan 4.

"He has surrendered today (Wednesday). He will be produced before a magistrate within the stipulated 24 hours," a senior crime branch official said.

Police officers are refusing to divulge further into next course of action.
