The boyfriend of a British girl stabbed to death on a house boat in India has said he hopes his girlfriend's killer "to be in hell".
Speaking exclusively to Daybreak Saeed Ahmed Shoda said: "I want him to get a big punishment, really suffer you know, and I want him to be in hell as well."
The parents of a British woman found stabbed to death on a house boat hotel in Kashmir said they begged her not to travel to the area.
24-year-old Sarah Groves was found in a pool of blood inside her room on the house boat on Saturday. A Dutch national has been arrested on suspicion of her murder.
Speaking at a press conference in Guernsey, Miss Groves' father said she had decided to travel to Kashmir after meeting a man called Samir and arranging to stay with his family. Victor Groves said he had been concerned his daughter was changing her original plans. He said:
"She went north instead. We tried so hard to stop her going."
The boyfriend of a British woman murdered in India has told Daybreak she was a "very good very kind" woman.
Sarah Groves was stabbed to death at the weekend on a houseboat where she had been staying.
Saeed Ahmed Shoda explained how he broke the news of her death to her family.
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".
