The mother of a British girl murdered in the resort state of Goa has been summoned to give evidence to investigators after she said she knew the killer's identity, police said Friday.

Fiona MacKeown, whose 15-year-old daughter Scarlett Keeling was found dead on a Goa beach in February, told a British newspaper earlier this week that a powerful person was involved in the murder.

"I was approached by many people who told me this man's name. It is common knowledge out there it seems. He is a powerful person with money," MacKeown told The Guardian.

Goa police said MacKeown would be called to testify under oath.

"Fiona has made a statement that she knows the identity of Scarlett's killer. Hence, we have summoned her to depose before investigating agencies," police superintendent Bosco George told reporters in state capital Panaji.

The official said the summons would be sent to MacKeown's address in England after her lawyer refused to accept it as his client had left India over the weekend.

MacKeown left Goa on Sunday after failing to retrieve multiple organs removed from her daughter's body during an autopsy. She has refused to bury Keeling's body without the missing organs.

MacKeown accused Indian authorities of covering up the murder after police initially dismissed her death as drowning.

Police in March arrested a bartender and an alleged drug dealer for conspiracy to murder the girl. They said the pair gave Keeling a cocktail of illegal drugs before one of them repeatedly raped her and left her for dead.
