UK tourist dies at Phuket resort after late-night noise row

A UK tourist has died after he was involved in a late-night fight with another guest at a resort in Phuket, Thailand.

British national Amitpal Singh Bajaj, on holiday with his wife and two young children, got into an argument with the man in the next room, who he accused of being noisy.

Hotel security had twice visited the room used by the guest, named as Roger Bullman from Norway,  that evening, to ask him to keep the noise down, according to reports.

At 4am, Bajaj confronted him and reportedly stabbed Bullman in the shoulder with a steak knife.

Bullman, who is trained in martial arts, got the British man in a choke hold and maintained his grip on him.

The 53-year-old, from Oslo, said he did not mean to kill Bajaj, and did not think he had done so.

He has been charged and released on bail by the Phuket Provincial Court.

British consular officials are in contact with Mr Bajaj's family, Thai police said.
