This is what family and friends of the former Goan Catholic priest and activist are clutching on to, refusing to bury his body because they suspect he was murdered.
The body has been lying in the morgue at Goa Medical College for nearly 17 months. We were fighting several cases against the land mafia and builders who had occupied land in Vaxim, St Estevam and Tiracol. Where was this concern when police beat up his supporters seeking probe into his murder?
We cannot abandon the fight. The issue is not about the burial, it is about giving him justice. Dias was 52 when he died. The then superintendent of police North GoaUmesh Gaonkar, under whom the case was investigated, said it was a clear case of accidental death. The police are going by the version of two boys who went swimming with Dias that night and insist he drowned as he was under the influence of alcohol. St Estevam is an island village in Cumbharjua constituency from where Dias had contested the assembly elections as an independent candidate.
Goans settled abroad launched a crowdfunding initiative last year to finance the fight of his friends and activists who filed the petition with the Panaji bench of Bombay high court demanding a fair probe into his death.
The initiative has raised more than Rs 7 lakh so far. Cobra mom and her 26 babies rescued from a house in Odisha. See pics. Smriti Irani shares video featuring Dilip Kumar, leaves netizens emotional.
