Mumbai, Mar 27 (UNI) Body of Scarlett Keeling, the 15-year-old British girl who was murdered in Goa last month, was brought to Santacruz Airport this evening to be taken to Cooper Hospital for further examination.

A further examination will be carried out to find out more details about the drug contents in Scarlett's body and the reason of her death, officials said.

Goa police had confirmed in their investigation reports that cocaine, alcohol and traces of ecstasy drug were found in Scarlett's body.

The scantily clad body of Scarlett was found at Anjuna beach on February 18 and it was alleged that she was high on drugs and alcohol before she was killed.

Prime accused, Placido Carvalho, who was arrested by Goa police on March 13, had admitted to having raped Scarlett after making her unconscious with a heavy dose of cocaine, alcohol and ecstasy tablets.

Second accused, Samsung D'Souza (29), who was arrested the next day after the arrest of Carvalho, too had admitted to having sex with Scarlett and leaving her unconscious on the sea side.

Scarlett's mother, Fiona Mackeown had accused the Goa police of not conducting the investigation properly and said she had lost faith in them after the police failed to have a breakthrough in the case in the initial stages of investigations.

Sub-Inspector Nerlon Albuquerque was suspended by the Goa Government on March 13 for his laxity in the investigations of the case and Chief Minister Digamber Kamat had announced that action will be taken against erring officers.
