The tourist accepted the offer and followed the woman who directed him to a taxi. Direction: Tranquebar, a suburb of Port-Louis.

In Tranquebar, they went to the shop, not far from Le Pouce mountain, to buy beer. The woman then invited the man to follow her home. The Briton followed her without knowing what awaited him. Inside, he got the shock of his life. He came across two men who threw themselves at him. One of them immobilized him and strangled him before stealing a sum of Rs 10,000 as well as his cell phone.
