Panaji, Mar 12 (UNI) Mother of the British minor girl who was allegedly raped and murdered on North Goa's Anjuna beach last month, has shot off a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today, seeking a central probe into the ''police-drug cartel nexus'' to expose the elements behind the mysterious death of her daughter.
The victim Scarlette Eden Keeling's mother Fiona Mackeown, had in her letter, a copy of which she sent to chief secretary of Goa J P Singh, blamed the police for misleading the investigation from the very inception and sought an impartial probe.
Chief Minister Digambar Kamat had yesterday ruled out investigation by the CBI into the episode claiming that Goa police was competent enough to unearth the truth behind the crime that attracted global media attention.
She had also asked for a copy of the original FIR, through her legal advisor Vikram Varma of the Supreme Court, to find out whether the police had really altered the case into homicide and rape from natural death due to drowning.
Meanwhile, Inspector General of Police (crimes) Kishan Kumar maintained, ''You will come to know the big developments in this case very soon.'' One person, related to the beach shack, who was found to have had sexual relations with the girl, had been taken into police custody for a fortnight for interrogation, while hunt is on for more key witnesses in this case.
