PANAJI: Goa Medical College (GMC) on Tuesday said that Praful Jena, who allegedly killed artist Shireen Mody, died of pulmonary edema, and that his viscera has been preserved for chemical analysis. Goa police, on receiving the postmortem report, said that there will be no change in status of the case (unnatural death).
Inspector general of police (IGP) Jaspal Singh, when asked how the force would file a chargesheet in the case when the accused is dead, said, “The police, after completing the investigation, will file an abatement chargesheet.” Abatement chargesheets are filed when a trial isn’t possible due to the death of the accused.
REPORTERS spoke to forensic experts who said the pulmonary edema could’ve been caused by alcohol, poisoning or smothering. DSP Gajanan Prabhudesai had said on Sunday that Jena was an alcoholic.
The maid, 18-year-old Shilpa Puri from Karnataka, said that at around 10.15am on Sunday, while she was working in the kitchen, she saw the gardener and Mody going into the storeroom. Shilpa said that when she started working at around 9.30am at Mody’s house, Jena was working in the garden. Shilpa, who in her complaint said Jena was from Odisha, told police that after both Mody and Jena went inside the storeroom adjacent to the kitchen, a friend came looking for Mody.
“I went to call madam at the storeroom and at that, time I found Pappu (gardener Praful Jena) coming out from the storeroom with a metal pipe in his hand. I asked him where is madam, upon which he abused me and tried to assault me with the metal pipe,” she said in her complaint.
Shilpa said she managed to escape, and Jena dropped the pipe and ran towards the backside of the house. The maid said she went inside the house and informed Mody’s daughter Saffron Wiehl that Jena abused her and tried to assault her with a pipe
