Panaji, Aug 3: The mother of British teenager Scarlet Eden Keeling, who was allegedly raped and killed on a beach of Goa, alleged before a court that state Home Minister Ravi Naik's son Roy, along with 4 others, had given drugs to her daughter.
"Roy D'Souza, Roy Naik, Julio Lobo (Scarlett"s boyfriend), Samson D'Souza and Placido Carvalho, had been giving drugs to my daughter," Fiona Mackeown said in her deposition to Goa Children's Court, on Monday, Aug 2.
Fiona, was responding to the cross examination by defense lawyer Jos Peter D'Souza who had asked her whether she was serious about her comments to the media that the Home Minister is involved in the death of her daughter.
She said "I have been told that Ravi Naik is the head of the drug nexus along with his son and that policemen are also involved in the same."
Fiona said she did not tell about the same (Ravi Naik and Roy Naik) to the police since she did not have any evidence to support the same.
"I started suspecting Ravi Naik immediately after the murder of my daughter," she said in the deposition which went on for almost three hours.
Scarlett's seminude body was found on Anjuna shore on Feb 18, 2008, following which two locals, Samson D'Souza and Placido Carvalho, were arrested by Goa police and later handed over to CBI.
