After having charged the four accused for the murder of Keenan Santos and Reuben Fernandez,the D N Nagar Police on Monday added charges of outraging the modesty of a woman and criminal intimidation.

The move to add the other charges comes after the police recorded the statements of Keenan’s girlfriend Priyanka Fernandes and Mahbeesh Shaikh,two of the three girls who were present during the incident.

The police had earlier charged the four accused —Jeetendra Rana,Sunil Both,Deepak Piswal and Satish Durgraj — with murder,causingp hurt with a dangerous weapon and common intent.
