For a moment, just for a moment, we thought Abdul Rauf of The Navhind Times pulled out a masterpiece. Coming up with a confirmation that Scarlette Keeling death as murder a day before the second post mortem could be conducted.
But keeping in mind the subsequent developments, its pretty clear, that somethings got to be very very fishy about any story published in the Navhind Times, that deals with the issue of sexual abuse, especially considering that the editor himself faces charges of molesting a minor.

The story TNT carried as its page 1 lead on March 8 is all but a plug designed to save Dr Silvano Sapeco, the chap who conducted the forensic examination. It’s a tissue that's meant to mop up Sapeco’s dirty trail.

Here’s some huge holes in the TNT story.

Tell us guys, what in Gods name is the ‘final report of the first autopsy’ on which Rauf bases his story.

This ‘final report’ is a devious piece of paper, which was drafted by Dr Silvano Sapeco much, much after to after the autopsy. Check out these dates. This should make things clear to you.

-- The first autopsy on the body was carried out by Dr Sapeco on February 18.

-- On March 5 after the shit hit the ceiling, the Goa government ordered a second autopsy to be conducted by a panel of doctors.

-- This letter which the Navhind Times dubs as the ‘final report’ was written on March 6, a day after the chief minister’s statement.

So why did Dr Sapeco wait for more than two weeks to hand over the final report? That too, after a second autopsy had already been ordered?

There’s more guys.

The Navhind Times in a report published today (March 9) goes on to call this shady bit of correspondence ‘supplementary evidence’.

There’s more in The Navhind Times report, which makes us believe that it is a suspscious plant designed to fool readers. This is that fishy paragraph.

It is also learnt that though the case was transferred to Mr Braz Menezes, the police inspector in-charge of Bicholim police station, for investigations, the all important report sent in a sealed cover and which stated that the girl died due to homicidal drowning and that she was raped was not handed over him. It was only after Mr Menezes met Dr Sapeco that he learnt of the report and reported to his superiors.

You expect people to believe this?
The Goan State has begun a cover-up on the suspected rape and murder of Scarlette Keeling. It is only too sad that we journos and the newspapers help them in every effort.

Read the Edit written by Derrick Almeida in the GOMANTAK TIMES, March 5, 2008 with the heading Mystery or farce?

Why no comments on it and why take on Abdul Rauf of The Navhind Times. Is it because he is the 'editor friend' and part of the gossip mongers circle and allows all you pricks to contribute and write nonsense in Gomantak Times

That's a very sharp analysis of a very suspicious 'investigative' report. When Navhind Times 'investigates' something, there has to be a motive behind it. And when the reporter is Rauf Beig, you can bet that motive has something to do with Vitamin M.
Thanks, but how about outing something about the papers you all work/write for - Gomantak Times?

Gomantak Times did not carry any investigations but have written a very powerful editorial stating that the murder is all a media hype.Since Gomantak Times took up this stand the friends in Penpricks had to oblige. So blackout on anything to do with Gomantak Times.

I hope that Manohar Prabhu Parrikar doesn't try to gain political mileage out of this case and take pot shots on Digu.

Not long ago he 'expelled/deported' a goan to a neighbouring state because he had contracted an incurable disease/cold (I forget the virus' name but it was common a few years ago... bird flu??)
