Make public the probe into Goa teen's mysterious death: Cong to CM

Panaji, Sep 20 (TIWN) Chief Minister Pramod Sawant must make public the progress of the investigation into the death of teenager Siddhi Naik, who was found dead in mysterious circumstances at the popular Calangute beach last month, state Congress president Girish Chodankar said on Saturday.

The 19-year-old Naik, a resident of Nachinola village in North Goa, was missing since the morning of August 12 and a missing complaint was filed by her father with the local police station. Her body was found the following day at Calangute beach. A post mortem has ruled out any sexual assault and murder, while identifying the cause of death as drowning. The father, Santosh, last week filed a complaint with the Calangute police station alleging that his daughter was murdered and has demanded a criminal probe into the case.

But days after the body was found, her father has now accused the Goa Police of shoddy investigation. Chodankar said that in the absence of a sincere police investigation, the deceased's father was "running from pillar to post and begging for justice for his daughter".
