The girlfriend of a red cross worker from Rochdale who was murdered while on holiday in Sri Lanka has spoken for the first time about their ordeal. Khuram Shaikh who was 32, was killed at his hotel on Christmas Day in 2011.
His girlfriend Victoria Tkacheva has waived her right to anonymity as she described how she was beaten and raped by the same group of men. The pair, who met in 2009 were holidaying at the Nature resort in Tangalle, when a group of men arrived at a hotel party on Christmas Eve.
Khuram was later found dead, and Ms Tkacheva found naked in a hotel room having been raped. Ms Tkacheva says she fears justice will never be done. One of eight suspects who was arrested but later released is a local politician whose family have close ties to the Sri Lankan president.
