OH boy...

I didnt know in which furom to post this one. but here it is- i heard on the news today that a young isreali murdered in north india (didnt say where yet) yesterday and his body was dumped to a valley or something.. from what i understand he was robbed. now his friends are guarding the body since there is a problam to evacuate him.. and that happend after he travelled for 9 months and was about to come back in 2 weeks!! sad...

I can imagine the parents in israel nodding their heads and thinking how unsfe it is to travell in india and thinking that it probably has somthing to do with drugs.

I want to be optmistic and keep thinking that India is really not a violent land in general. hopeing this case and others arent indicating any change and that this is just part of the statistics for thing like it (since it can happen anywhere in the world)

May he rest in peace

From today's Jerusalem Post: Israeli hikers guarding friend's body. I'll move it back to Trouble forum where it was.

Parvati & Kullu seem to have a reputation for this kind of trouble. Is it possible to trek there and be totally immune from the drug scene and/or the associated supply trade that lurks close by ..... or is that all part & parcel with the territory?

"Almost 40 hours after finding Sheck, 23, stabbed and fatally wounded in northern India Sunday where the group was hiking, they were still guarding his body from Indian authorities, who wanted to conduct an autopsy."

Yes, ?? is right. It is perfectly within the Indian governments authority to do this.


This incident is indeed tragic.

But the Jerusalem posts story:

"Tourists from all over the world come to this magical place that's also known for its dangerous history. Gangs of criminals and drug dealers wander around in this isolated area and can commit a crime and disappear," Danieli said. "

me: no comment, except, then if it is known, what are these guys doing there

I think it's a fair statement .... better to overstate it a little then understate or pooh-pooh it - where there is drug demand there will be a supply and nefarious people will gather.

Gangs plural, in this case, only meaning more than one. This isn't the first case of a person going missing or murdered under unusal circumstances in that region .... and as they say one missing or dead person is way too many.

On re-reading, my earlier post reads insensitive (which wasn't intended) and implies that these guys were there for the drugs (which was intended when I wrote it, but now seems unfair to me, too. Sorry.)

The intention was not to refute the report that gangs roam around in that area. That may very well be true; in fact a recent TV programme here in India highlighted the drug mafia's existence in that region, along with naming some of the usual suspects within the government and police forces.

Whether they were there for drugs or not, that region appears to breed a better than average possibility of getting involved in a real drug situation from either being in the classic wrong place at the wrong time or guilty by association with a new found trekking buddy who actually is using/dealing etc.

..... maybe it's time to clean up the neighbourhood a bit.
