British tourist raped and killed in India

A British tourist who was murdered in the Indian holiday resort of Palolem beach in Goa had left a heartbreaking final post on Facebook just days before her death. Danielle McLaughlin, 28, was found naked in a pool of blood yesterday morning after attending Holi celebrations in southern Goa. Her killer sexually assaulted her and ‘disfigured’ her face with a beer bottle. A local man, named as Vikat Bhagat, has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

The backpacker, who arrived in Goa on February 23, had been at Agonda beach and Patnem beach with friends during her first fortnight in the state. On Monday night she celebrated the Holi festival at nearby Palolem beach, popular with Western tourists.

Her badly beaten body was discovered by a farmer at Deobag Beach about four miles away on Tuesday morning. She had suffered extensive injuries to her face and head. Police have arrested known criminal Vikas Bhagat and he has confessed his crimes, saying he sexually assaulted her and disfigured her with a beer bottle so people wouldn’t know it was her body.
