Panaji: A British tourist was found dead in
a hotel at Colva beach in South Goa on Sunday, police said.

39-year-old William Scott, who was staying alone in the
hotel room, was found dead this morning and police suspect
drug overdose as the reason for his death.

Colva police said Scott had returned to the hotel, 35 kms
from here, late last night.

"The hotel management called police as he was not
responding to the calls. They broke open the door to find him
dead," police said.

The body of the Briton has been kept in the morgue and
postmortem would be conducted only after getting consent of
his family members, they said.
