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".
