Goa freedom fighter's widow dies lonely death in her flat

Skeletal remains of the widow of Vaman Radhakrishna, a freedom-fighter and journalist, were recovered from her house Wednesday, the Goa police said. Padmashri Radhakrishna, who lived alone in her flat at Porvorim near here, is believed to have died several weeks ago, a police official said.

Inspector Paresh Naik of Porvorim Police said her death came to light when her brother contacted police, saying she was not responding to phone calls. He had visited her in October 2018 when she was discharged from the Institute of Psychiatry and Human Behaviour (IPHB), Naik added.

After her husband's death in November 2001, Padmashri lived alone, he said. Vaman Radhakrishna, a journalist, had been jailed by the Portuguese during the Goa liberation movement..
