Two Chinese tourists who were part of a tour group visiting Nepal were found dead in their hotel room today northeast of Kathmandu under unexplained circumstances, police said. One man was aged 62, and the other was 55.
They were found dead in their hotel room in the popular tourist destination of Nagarkot, a short distance from the Nepal capital, police officer Shreeram Giri, told AFP.
“They arrived Thursday afternoon, went sightseeing, left the other tour members late in the evening and went to bed,'' Giri said.
Police broke into the room after they failed to appear for breakfast.
“One was found dead in his bed and the other appeared to have died while coming out of bathroom,'' Giri said, adding that an autopsy would be carried out.—AFP
