as of sept 24, the jerusalem post reports that the israeli police are reopening the case of the young man murdered in india because his friends stories contain inconsistencies....interesting .......i am making an assumption here as to the fact that it is the same story we have been talking about.
cheers

I did miss this topic before, but after reading the first post, I immediately found the "guarding of the body from Indian autopsy" very suspicious indeed.

It seems that the Israeli police followed the same logic...

There are cases where members of a group of tourists kill one of their own...

The further investigation into a story that was strange from the off is curious.

But I do hope that we are agreed that it takes more than character faults to deserve death!

if local people are being accused of murdering a tourist and it is not the case then it should be proven one way or the other.people in places like that are probably earning a living from some of the tourism and if that is jeopardised by false rumours then that is not good nor fair.
one question below says: himachal pradesh, will i freeze to death or be murdered? see what i mean!
if one is a noisy, arrogant bastard i, personally, give a death sentence nick H but it could tend to bring negative responses and get one into trouble.

freudian slip, nick H, i left out WOULD'NT!re give a death sentence.

Well, yes, I see your point of view now; I was obviously reading too much into your early post: apologies for that.

Nice slip, by the way . You know the song, If I ruled the World? I always say that it is a good thing for the world that I don't!

i cracked up nick, when i saw that i,d left out the most important word.
let's hope that the guilty party is found in the murder case.
himachal pradesh.....what a place!!!! i spent 4 + 5 summer months at manali, in the seventies, and when i left india i used to sing "manali, manali,how i love you, manali" (to myself) sounds real corny but that is how i felt about that beautiful place.
thanks for apology. looking back, i probably could've been more explanitory but one tends to shorten ones thoughts to put them out there on the forum.

The only Manali I've been to is a village to the North of Chennai.

It's nice.

But there are certainly no mountains!

Maybe I'll make it up North one day...

if that were the case, then a lot of lawyers I know would have been hung....

sorry, just had to say that....I haven't had my mug of tea yet, that makes me dangerous.

my apologies to the quiet, humble lawyers out there....

The thing you must do is let your guest house owner know where you are going and how long you will be.

Walk village paths that are frequently traversed by the local women (who chop woods and tend to their trees).

Don't bring any valuables with you. Leave them in your room.

For long treks, take an experienced guide who doesn't get on your nerves.

I live in Manali and there are a lot of Israelis getting high,hanging out with the wrong people, going off with them and getting ripped off and worse.

Wink

This area (Parvati valley, Malaana even the Hampta pass area) has seen more dissapearances and tourists robbed murdered than most areas in the Himalaya which I trek to for a living.
There is a clear warning in the Lonely planet about the bad JU JU in this area.
That said some of the finest hash on the planet comes from here, and takers abound in Manali for the stuff. Isrealis will unfortunately suffer guilt by association, Half of Manali is taken over by low budget long term visitors from Israel and Hash is a big part of the Scene, worse still Israel is the worlds number one producer of Ecstasy !

Dont head of alone "trekking" / hoo haa hunting with scales and all !
