Panaji, Mar 19 (UNI) Brushing aside suggestions to initiate action against slain British teenager scarlette Keeling's mother Fiona for her outbursts and allegations against the state, Chief Minister Digambar Kamat said his priority was to give justice to the aggrieved mother.

''My priority is to render justice to the aggrieved mother, who has already lost her child,'' Mr Kamat told mediapersons here today, soon after returning from New Delhi after briefing Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, on the Keeling episode.

When asked about Fiona's allegation against Home Minister Ravi Naik and the state police about their nexus with drug cartels and a sting operation by a satellite channel pointing out some cops and the minister's son, the Chief Minister said he had to first ascertain the facts before coming to any conclusion.

''The law will take its own course and the investigation of the case is on the right track by going to its roots,'' he added.

Mr Kamat recalled his initiative for the conduct of second autopsy of Keeling's body on Fiona's demand and order for a thorough probe into the rape and murder case, that drew global media attention raising questions about the police sincerity in checking the drug cartels in Goa.

Mr Kamat maintained that Goa continued to be the safest international tourist destination.
