Rosy Feroor, the third accused in the rape and human trafficking of a minor involving a sitting Goa legislator, surrendered before the Crime Branch on Saturday.

Feroor has been accused by the victim of selling her off in March to unattached legislator Atanasio Monserrate for Rs.50 lakh in connivance with the minor girl’s mother.
