A Post That Has No Title
Whatever be the identity of the killer of Scarlett Keeling, the fact remains that he/they remain unpunished. What happened on that fateful night still remains a mystery…..why was the second autopsy report different from the first one? Why she had five after-death abrasions on her face, back and shins and had sand stuffed in her mouth and throat.
No one knows the answers to the above mentioned questions but what everyone knows is Scarlett was not a “good” girl and her mother had 4 partners.
The Goa government’s take on the Scarlett case is…….(Iam at a loss of words here….oh BTW the good news is the Govt is ready for a CBI inquiry) .If we look carefully at some of the statements that were earlier given by the Goa government and its spokesperson, you would notice that the whole blame is put on the mother, Fiona Mckeown and on the deceased girl. If the girl had been “good”, then she would not have been raped and murdered…..this is what Mr Minister had to say “How can a mother, let her minor daughter go out so late in the night?…. Tourists should take care of themselves.” I also saw some comments on various blogs like “Scarlett was wasted, she was just 15, yet she was having sex…..” So, it is not a surprise that she was raped. Now my question is – can all these comments justify what was done to Scarlett? So, does it mean a girl covered in veil won’t be raped but a girl in a bikini should be raped?
I have another question to put forth. Much has been said about Fiona’s bad parenting. She left Scarlett alone in anjuna with a 25 year old tourist guide and his aunts. This was a mistake which she has accepted and she will be fighting this demon for the rest of her life. But no one is raising their voice against the bad parenting of the miscreants. People who can rape a 15 year old and stuff her mount with sand, I am left wondering what kind of parenting did they receive?
