Both the accused - Samson D`Souza and Placido Carvalho,
filed applications before the court seeking to know about the
missing pages.

Goa Children`s Court today directed CBI, which is
investigating the case, to file a reply to their application
by September 3.

The teenager`s body was found on Anjuna beach`s shore on
February 18, 2008.

CBI has charged the two locals of drugging, raping and
leaving Scarlett to die on the beach.

The diary was recovered during the investigation from the
room of Scarlett`s boyfriend Julio Lobo.

Scarlett`s mother, Fiona Mackeown, earlier last month
identified the diary and its contents during her deposition
before the court.

Scarlett`s death was initially brushed under carpet by
Goa police but they were forced to act after Fiona launched a
campaign seeking justice for her daughter.

After initial investigations, the case was handed over to
CBI, which has filed a chargesheet in Goa Children`s Court
against the two accused.
