The Goa police Wednesday issued a lookout notice against singer Remo Fernandes after he failed to appear before them despite being summoned twice. The artiste faces charges of verbally abusing a 17-year old girl, who was injured in an accident allegedly caused by his son Jonah Fernandes on December 1.
“We received a communication from Remo’s lawyer that he is in Europe till January 8 and will be available for questioning after that,” said Police Inspector at Agacaim police station Jivba G Dalvi.
Officers said during the probe, they realised Remo had surrendered his Indian citizenship and taken up Portuguese nationality. The police said Jonah appeared before them Wednesday and gave his statement.
