A Rochdale man who was murdered while on holiday in Sri Lanka died trying to protect his partner from a group of local men who went on to brutally assault her, his family has been told.
Khuram Shaikh was shot and stabbed at a hotel in the beach resort of Tangelle on Christmas Day in 2011.
His family were originally told he was attacked breaking up a fight between a group of men in a hotel, including a prominent Sri Lankan politician.
Khuram's brother Nasir flew to the country last week to speak with police and politicians over fears of corruption and political cover up in the case.
