Two major cases related to death of British teenager Scarlett Eden Keeling will come up for hearing in the Panaji bench of Bombay High Court on Monday.

In one case, the Court will give decision on the Central Bureau of Investigation's (CBI) plea to cancel bail granted to prime accused Samson D'Souza by Goa Children's court.

In another case, a Non Government Organisation (NGO) has challenged Children's Court order refusing to direct police to investigate into the role of Scarlett's mother Fiona Mackeown under Children's Act.

The local NGO 'Utt Goenkara' had filed a petition before Goa Children's Court accusing Fiona for violating section 8 (1) (2) and section 8 (12) of Goa Children's Act.

The NGO's spokesman Aires Rodrigues in the petition had cited that Fiona had left Scarlett alone in Goa in unlawful custody of a local boy on the fateful day when the teenager was found dead on Anjuna beach on February 18.

The NGO has also filed a formal complaint with Director General of Police (DGP) against Fiona under Goa Children's Act.
