Panaji, Mar 27 (UNI) Fiona Mackenow, mother of slain British teenager Scarlette Eden Keeling, desires to conduct a third 'inquest' on her daughter body , which was flown to Mumbai today enroute London.

Her legal advisor Vikram Verma told UNI that the authorities in London would make a thorough examination of Keeling's body to ascertain facts through the ''inquest procedure'' with viscera sent for chemical examination three weeks after her death on February 18, by Anjuna police here.

''The findings, however, does not have any legal validity in India,'' he said.

The Goan doctors had conducted two autopsies on Fiona's insistence following which the police registered a case of rape and murder and arrested two young suspects, including a drug peddler.

Meanwhile, Fiona and Verma will leave for Mumbai on Sunday. Fiona would fly back on Monday.

She may revisit Goa if the authorities extend her re-entry visa, which is doubtful with Home Minister Ravi Naik here not in its favour.

Meanwhile, the Home Minister told UNI that he would consult the chief minister, director general of police and Home Secretary to finalise the modalities for a CBI probe into the Keeling's case after the ongoing budget session of the State Legislative Assembly is over tomorrow.
