Recovery of skeletons: Goa Congress chief to face investigations

Panaji, Jul 9 (PTI): Goa Congress president Subhash Shirodkar will face police investigations in connection with the recovery of human skeletons from the backyard of his medical college in Shiroda village, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said on Monday.

"Subhash Shirodkar who runs this college where these skeletons were found should be investigated," Parrikar, who also holds Home portfolio, told members of BJP state executive here.

Nine skeletons were found in the backyard of Shree Kamaxi Homoeopathic College in Shiroda village last weekend.

"First we need to find out whether these skeletons are of men or women," the chief minister said, adding that recovery of human remains was a serious matter.

Raising the spectre of mass murders, Parrikar said, "We need to know whether this is a case similar to that of Mahanand Naik".

'Serial killer' Naik allegedly killed 18 women and is currently facing trials in various courts in the state.

Incidentally, Naik also hails from Shiroda village.

Parrikar questioned the "silence" maintained by Opposition Congress on the incident.

"If these skeletons were found anywhere in Panaji (Parrikar's constituency), Congress would have made an issue out of it," he said.

When contacted, Shirodkar told PTI that he was ready to face any investigation.

"I am ready for any investigation. These cadavers were brought for study purpose in the college. We have the records to show that these remains were buried in the pit after securing due certification from state pollution control board.

"Heavy rains might have washed away the mud exposing the skeletons," he said.

    If we dig deep the closets of Congress all over the country many such skeletons will fall off the shelf.

    So far we have heard that skeletons stumbles from cupboards of any malicious person or Political Party but skeletons found in back yard of Medical College means either they might have smuggled the dead bodies to Medical College for teaching purposes or unclaimed dead bodies buried in unprofessional way. In both cases concerned person should be punished severally

    Shirodkar running a college or brothel or a tiartr academy? When you finish the job inside your college premises, you should have cremated the cadavers at the proper cremation site or bury them to the proper burial sites either at makbara or cementary. With all these type of scandals such as skeletons and mining, you are not to be trusted any more in our Goan society.
