A 24-year old British woman has been found dead on a houseboat in Kashmir, according to reports.
It is thought that the woman was stabbed on the boat at popular tourist destination Srinagar’s Dal Lake.
The British High Commission in Delhi and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office are investigating the reports to establish more information.
A Dutch national who fled from the houseboat with his passport in the night has been arrested. He left his belongings on the boat, according to reports.
The incident is likely to have a negative impact on the struggling tourism industry in Indian-administered Kashmir.
