    police and courts always wants to grab publicity when celebrities are involved. the DG police personally oversees the case ? What junk? And for alleged verbal abuse. Since when does such a matter become top priority which has to be address the same day. They have solved the pending Rape and Murder cases already. And why should some one cut short a holiday overseas and return just because the police thinks verbal abuse is a the most heinous of crimes (Even more than m murder). Agreeing to present oneself in court for evidence on ones return should have been sufficient. Goa Police - Go find some real work and address some real pressing issues. clear over stretch by the police and court and total lack of application.

      When police already know that he is out of country, what is the logic of issuing a "lookout" notice? It's really about the police trying to show that they are doing something, whereas this is making themselves a fool out of the act. Remo we are with you, and just forgive the non-sense police.
