The death of 29 year old Ribandar resident Jennifer D’Silva at Vagator, has once again raised the issue of availability of drugs in Goa and more particularly along the coastal belt of the State. Pending the report of her viscera, the autopsy report indicates that he death was due to edema of the brain that could be caused due to alcohol consumption in excess, poisoning or even drug overdose.
Jennifer’s body was found in a dark lane of Vagator last week and the scratch marks on her right toes indicated that her body was dragged to the spot. When she was discovered in a comatose condition early morning, initially she was frothing at her mouth and later on blood started oozing out and her complexion began turning black.
Police have arrested her ex-boyfriend Saurabh Khan in the case and he has been remanded to 14 days police custody. Jennifer who had a jewellery business at Goa Tourism Development Corporation premises in Vagator had reportedly fallen in love with Saurabh who also had another store in the same building.
However, the two had reportedly split up about three months back but remained friends. The day before her death, Saurabh had reportedly invited Jennifer for dinner at his house which she refused on ground of being busy.
The day prior to her body being found, police investigations revealed that Jennifer was dropped by a motorcycle pilot at around 8:30 pm at Chapora implying that she must have gone to visit Saurabh who lives in Chapora.
