British aid worker Khuram Shaikh’s Russian girlfriend was present at the Colombo High Court today when it took up the inquiry into the killing of Mr. Shaikh at a holiday resort in Tangalle two years ago.
 
She was accompanied by officials of the British High Commission.
 
The 32-year-old Red Cross worker from Rochdale was stabbed and shot dead on December 25, 2011 allegedly by six men while he was holidaying in Sri Lanka with his girlfriend Victoria Aleksandrovna Tkacheva, who was beaten unconscious and raped.
 
It is believed that the brawl had occurred when Mr. Shaikh was said to have attempted to protect his girlfriend from the men who were sexually harassing her. 
 
Mr. Shaikh’s brother Nasser Shaikh is also in Sri Lanka to attend the murder trial.

    This brave girl needs justice. The murderers and rapists will be defended by the best criminal lawyers. So what we need at the moment is Chinese justice. Confession of the suspect (Chinese are experts in this regard), statement and identification by the victim, DNA and other forensic evidence are all what is needed. No time wasted. Produced in courts found guilty and taken to a quarry and the story ends with a bullet behind the head. All within a few weeks. via DM iPad app

    These goons and scoundrels will be bailed out by end March. Hanging is too humane a punishment for these monsters. They must be sprayed with sugar syrup and left in a public place so that they would be eaten to death by red ants. via DM iPad app
