A 68-year-old French tourist met a gruesome end while vacationing in India.
Local police in Thanjavur in the southern state of Tamil Nadu have arrested a 29-year-old student who confessed to murdering him after the two got into a fight, post-sex.
Apparently, “The student got frustrated and hit him on the head with a wooden stick and he (the tourist) collapsed,” senior police officer Senthil Kumar told AFP.

The murderer, fearing that his unconscious lover had died from the blow, placed the tourist in a washing area in his home before dousing him in petrol and setting him on fire.
He then chopped up the corpse, hiding the parts in three sandbags and dumping them about 12km away in the nearby village of Moothakurichi.
Locals informed the police, who found his suitcase before questioning Thirumurugan.
He reportedly told officials the entire sequence of events, after which point they found the body and informed the French embassy in New Delhi.
