Daybreak's Nick Dixon reports:
Residents of India's northern Jammu and Kashmir state have expressed shock at the murder of Briton Sarah Groves, after her body was discovered early on Saturday morning.
Local houseboat owner Mehraj said: "She has been killed by tourist, not by a Kashmiri and we respect the tourist here, our culture is very nice and it has been here for a long time.
"The incident that has happened is unfortunate but the police have done a good job, they have arrested the accused, as he was on the run. It is good that they have caught him because now the facts will be revealed".
People have taken to Facebook to post messages on a page set up to pay tributes to Sarah Groves.
Underneath a photograph of her smiling, Charlene Carter said: "That beautiful smile I will never forget."
Donna Stacey said: "Waste of a beautiful life just goes to show the world we live in."
Police in India are investigating whether British tourist Sarah Groves was sexually assaulted before she was stabbed to death on a floating hotel in Kashmir.
Local police said Miss Groves, who had spent more than a month on the houseboat, had multiple stab wounds all over her body while a knife was found next to her.
Police said the Dutch national later arrested on suspicion of her murder had booked into a separate room on the houseboat.
Officers are investigating whether the two knew each other.
Receptionists Debbie Masterton and Julie Spruce from Guernsey leisure centre Beau Sejour have described Briton Sarah Groves as a "beautiful" girl who "brightened your day".
