A man accused of murdering a UK hotelier in India has appeared before a court in the Jalandhar region of the country.

Ranjit Singh Power, 54, who owned the Ramada Park Hall hotel in Wolverhampton, was last seen at an airport in Amritsar, Punjab, on 8 May.

His family reported him missing after he did not contact them for a week, according to the BBC.

Sukhdev Singh, a taxi driver, has allegedly confessed to killing Power.

Divers are searching for Power's body in a canal in Ropar District.
