Panaji, Dec 15 (IBNS) A former Goa legislator was brutally beaten up by his neighbour late last evening, reportedly over property dispute.

Victor Gonsalves, who once represented Santa Cruz constituency in the Goa Legislative Assembly, is admitted to the Goa Medical College and Hospital with multiple injuries. His brother had filed a police complaint on the victim's behalf.

"Victor was alone at home when R Fernandes, his neighbour trespassed in the premises and beat him indiscreetly. He sustained internal injuries as well," inspector Manoj Mardolkar told reporters.

GMC doctors have said that the patient will have to undergo several medical examinations to detect the internal injuries. Police are likely to arrest the assailant.

"Investigation has begun. We will record the victim's statement," said the officer.
