According to Agnelo Gracias, the criminal Erlich Pinto asked the Governor of Goa Manuel Vassalo e Silva for permission to visit his ailing mother in Goa. Goan bureaucrats requested the Governor Manuel Vassalo e Silva to decline. However, some influential persons pressurised the Governor Manuel Vassalo e Silva and he permitted. The criminal Erlich Pinto then spied around Goa and on the basis of the information he gathered he flew in solo into Goa which had no Portuguese defence aircraft and no Portuguese anti aircraft weapons, and he attacked the Goan National Radio, Emissora de Goa, murdering Goan civilians who were operating the station.
