Panaji: The Bombay High Court at Goa will pronounce on Wednesday a crucial verdict in connection with eleven year old case in connection with death and rape of British teenager Scarlet Eden Keeling, whose corpse was found at State’s Anjuna beach.

The Central Bureau of Investigation has charged two men – Samsung D’Souza and Placido Carvalho – in connection with death and rape of the British girl, who was then 15-year-old, and was holidaying in Goa along with her family.

Advocate Vikram Varma, representing Fiona Mackowenn, said that the division bench of Bombay High Court at Goa is scheduled to pronounce final verdict on Wednesday (tomorrow).

Goa children’s Court had acquitted both the accused in connection with the rape and murder CBI had challenged the order before the High Court in February 2017.

Varma said that the matter was heard by division bench compromising Justices R D Dhanuka and Prithviraj Chavan. CBI’s senior counsel Ejaz khan was representing the central agency before the Court.

“Senior Counsel Ejaz Khan as well as my team have laboured day and night to bring out the truth. We have absolute faith in the High Court and hope that justice would be served,” Varma said.

Scarlett’ bruised semi nude corpse was found at Anjuna beach on February 18, 2008. Goa Children’s Court had acquitted both the accused in September 2016.
