Lady cop attack case: Hubby held for plotting murder

Panaji: Partially overturning a 2016 trial court order, the Bombay High Court in Goa on Wednesday convicted Samson D'Souza and acquitted Placido Carvalho in connection with a case involving the sexual assault and death of 15-year-old British teenager Scarlett Keeling at Anjuna beach in 2008.

Speaking to reporters after the pronouncement of the order, Ejaz Khan, counsel for the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), said: "Samson has been convicted, Carvalho is acquitted. The matter would be heard on Friday for quantum of punishment."

The CBI had challenged the acquittal of the two beach-shack workers, Samson D'Souza and Placido Carvalho, who were accused of sexually assaulting 15-year-old Scarlett Keeling and leaving her to die on Anjuna beach in 2008.
