Indian police probe Aussie man's death

Somehow, I doubt whether the Indian students causing trouble in Melbourne really have anything to chuck a spazz over, considering that they are most likely much safer in Australia, than anywhere in India. Don't tell them that though, because I don't even want them here.

Indian police are investigating the death of an Australian man whose body was found in a guesthouse in the lawless eastern state of Bihar.

The body of 52-year-old Melbourne resident Michael David was found on Sunday afternoon in a guest house 15km from the state capital of Patna, police said.

"Authorities of the guest house alerted the police as Michael did not open the door. We broke the door and found him dead," police inspector Chandra Prakash told AFP.

The body has been sent for post-mortem examination and the Australian embassy has been informed, he said.

Police said the man had been staying in the guest house since May 29 and had arrived in India on May 16 on a tourist visa.

Caste and religion-based strongmen, along with Maoist rebels, have almost free reign in Bihar, where at least 5,000 murders and 12,000 abductions take place every year according to police figures.
