Plea to depute Belarus official

PANAJI: Anjuna police has written to the foreigner's registration office (FRO) to request the Belarus consulate to depute an official so that the forensic department at Goa Medical College (GMC) and hospital can conduct a post-mortem on the woman from Belarus, Olga Babich, whose body was found floating in a creek at Fernandes Vaddo at Siolim.

Babich, 28, who was staying in a rented apartment with her boyfriend, was found dead on Tuesday afternoon after her boyfriend Michael Chikin was admitted to the GMC on Tuesday morning following a drug overdose.

Though police requested GMC to conduct the post-mortem on Wednesday, they were informed that the post-mortem couldn't be conducted till police get permission from either the embassy or the girl's family.

Meanwhile, the police are trying to trace the friend who had consumed ketamine with the couple. "He is a Russian and runs a coffee shop in Arambol. On Tuesday morning, when he left the apartment, he had told the apartment owner that early morning he had heard a loud sound from the creek as if someone had jumped into the water or something was thrown into the water," said sources.
