Czech transferred to remand prison in India over murder of girlfriend

After an investigation lasting almost a fortnight, a court in India has transferred a 19-year-old Czech man charged with murdering his girlfriend to a remand prison. The body of the woman, who was 24, was found with multiple cuts and stab wounds in a hotel room at the resort of Goa that she had shared with the man. He initially claimed that the pair had been kidnapped, and faked injuries to himself, before confessing to the killing.
