Chapter 4 of the book BioConflict
The story is heading for an end shrouded in mystery.
"The End Game" by Seshadri_Sreenivasan

Like all technologies, biotechnology offers the potential of enormous benefit but also potential risks. Biotechnology could help address many global problems, such as climate change, an ageing society

Shirodkar didn’t hear from Dr Schmidt for over a month. But his words were ringing in his ears all the time, causing deep anxiety for the future of the Biotechnology if it fell into the wrong hands.

 “Their experiments must have gone wrong with half-baked reports I gave them. They must have made the subject of their cruel experiment eat some food modified to acquire fluorescence in bright green, and created living organisms like worms, which must have developed rapidly. When they couldn’t  develop an antidote, they let him die and dumped the body near the river.”

 While he was ruminating on Biotechnology's future, his wife called him excitedly to come and watch the ‘Breaking News’ on a leading channel.

Shirodkar always avoided watching the news on TV channels, which he felt upset his moods. “The news anchors always start saying ‘Good Morning or Evening’ and continue telling you what is not good about it” he used to joke with his friends. But what he saw on the TV had him stumped. He found the story bizarre.

The news reporter was narrating that after donating his entire possession and properties to the university, Herr Dr Nigel Schmidt, the famous bio-scientist from Germany had left for  Russia to pursue advanced research in GM and Biotechnology and that Goa was grateful for the yeomen service rendered by him for the betterment of the lives of the Goanese people.

He checked with the local Russian Embassy, the airlines and they all confirmed that he had flown to Moscow.
Inspector D’Souza told him he had met Dr Schmidt a fortnight ago and had registered the complaint lodged by him against the Russians. After thorough investigation, he had raided the Russians' illegal labs and had arrested many of them.

Shirodkar surmised that something significant must have cropped up that needed the help of Kremlin. But he found it hard to believe what the reporter was saying.

Why would Schmidt go to Russia of all places?

He knew Dr Schmidt was a hero among his students and colleagues in Germany.

He knew that the homesick scientist was looking forward to a reunion with his wife in Germany and lead a blissful married life for the rest of his life.

He knew he had an important paper to present at the next International Biotechnology Conference scheduled to be held in Germany the following year.

He knew he had made some critical strides in Eugenics and wanted to go public with it, and had chosen the Conference as the right platform to air his views and present a well-researched paper.

He knew he would come back to Goa sooner than later to follow up on his work with the university and guide them in R& D work.

Unfortunately, Shirodkar didn’t know that Herr Dr Nigel Schmidt was lying in the Arabian Sea depths with one ton of concrete block tied to his legs.
