A newlywed whose wife died on their honeymoon in Sri Lanka after apparently suffering food poisoning has reportedly been stopped from leaving the country.
Khilan Chandaria, 33, and bride Usheila Patel, 31, both fell ill during their honeymoon and Usheila died, The Sun reported.
Her devastated husband Khilan has now reportedly been told that he can’t leave the country until more tests are carried out.
The 33-year-old, who hasn’t been arrested or charged, told The Sun: “The authorities are not treating me as a culprit but aren’t treating me like a victim either. I don’t want to leave without her.”
According to The Sun, the couple married in Brent, North London, on April 14.
Their honeymoon, which was due to take in Sri Lanka and the Maldives, included a stay at the Amari Hotel in the city of Galle in Sri Lanka.
But after apparently drinking a vodka and sprite each and sharing a sandwich and chips, the couple fell ill.
They tried to shake off the illness in their room but phoned for help after they deteriorated.
They were rushed to hospital but Usheila died.
