A few sly foxes have begun run with Goa’s pack of excited watchdogs.
But also running alongside the pack now, is a television news hound whose brain appears to be dangling between his hind legs. Hey… we could even get a forensics doc to prove it.
It’s dangerous… that this lie, propagated by Dr Silvano Sapeco in The Navhind Times is taking root. A lie, which is being repeated by The Navhind Times, CNN-IBN so very often, that the lie has begun to imitate the footfalls of truth.
Both these organisations are banging a false story time and again, completely absolving Dr Silvano Sapeco from one of the most questionable and criminal autopsies, for reasons best known to them.
Press Trust of India (PTI) too has picked up the same fake thread and spun it into a yarn.
Neither of these media outfits have asked Dr Silvano Sapeco, the questions they are supposed to?
Why not in writing doc? Why did you not mention the claims you make now in writing?
Karn Kowshik of the CNN IBN maybe wet behind the ears, but Arun Sinha is not. Neither is Rupesh Samant of the PTI.
Why are these guys acting dumb? Why are they protecting a doc who failed miserably in his duty to perform an honest autopsy?
Sure you are allowed to hide a source, but we’d like to repeat the point we’ve made in our earlier post. This source has done a cardinal wrong. The source in this case Dr Sapeco has fudged the same post mortem report these guys are crying hoarse about.
He has to be questioned by you guys... man.
Or is it that these journos are just playing to the gallery… Someone offers you a wall to nail the cops. They rush to it, irrespective of the amount of blood splattered on the same wall. Nails the cops guys… that’s great, but also take a closer look at who’s sending you after them…
Guys if these journalists refuse to budge. Here’s the least that you can do.
If you are convinced with what we’ve written call these journos on the numbers provided below and ask them the questions we have. Ask them why are they shielding Dr Sapeco… Ask them why their reportage is not straight.

Have you guys carefully read the two autopsy reports? If you had, you wouldn't be writing this drivel. The second post mortem lists all the post-mortem bruises, while the first only pointed out the areas that had ante-mortem bruises.

The alleged 'clinching' conclusions in the second post mortem are actually highly guarded and heavily qualified statements.

Instead of getting after Dr Silvano Sapeco like a pack of bloodhounds, it would be better if you actually READ those reports before baying for his blood.

Kudos to Erol Jorge

You have managed to outsmart Choppy man! Used him first to get the Chief Sub Editors Post, Congrats. One fine day Choppy and Sergio convinced Ashwin Tombat that Erol should get Chief Sub Editors Post, as you all Journos Know Choppy's convincing tactics. He can make you believe anything, even that the "Earth is Flat". With Erol's resignation, the Personnel Manager was "sacked" for no fault of his. The latest news is that they are making moves to get him back, what a pity. Warning to the Herald employees, the Volcano is about to erupt be prepared to run.. He He He

Hey penpricks... was tax paid on the drugs/narcotics?
This story is about tax fraud. Please pursue it from a tax (income tax as well as commercial tax) angle.

You will reach your conclusion pretty soon.

What is this rubbish that the Goa IGP is reported as having said. He talks about doing an ossification test to prove the age of the girl. He claims that the deceased's passport is an "OK document". Then, why is he conducting this test?

Does he have a comparison template for european skeletons/bones, so as to determine age? Europeans' bone structures differ from Indians' in size and girth.
Why is he wasting tax payers' money to conduct unnecessary tests?

Why are the cops refusing to use the word "Murder"?

Diggu is shamelessly hiding behind statistics, when he makes the preposterous claim that for 5 million tourists a few murder cases are acceptible.

Speaking of Rupesh Samant... He hasn't made any comments on this blog in ages. I only get to read some of his opinions on the "Vox Populi" section of GT.

I long for Agnelo Pereira's comments too.

Do these TOI journos still hang out at Café Prakash, or have they moved up to the higher echelons of society and have their high tea at Marriot, Leela Palace and the like?

Penpricks: The "indiblogger" logo on your blog is incomplete. It does not show the Andaman & Nicobar Islands.
