Australian tourist found hanging in Bihar

An Australian tourist was found hanging from a tree at an orchard near Bihar's Bodh Gaya on Saturday.
Gaya city Superintendent of Police Anil Kumar said the deceased was identified as Heath Allan, 33, a resident of Westmead, a suburb of Sydney in Australia.
"Some local residents spotted the body of a foreigner hanging from a tree and informed the police. We have recovered the body and sent it for post-mortem examination," Kumar said.
Kumar said a suicide note was also found near the site, besides his bag and a diary.
Bodh Gaya, about 110 km from Patna, is considered the holiest of Buddhist shrines where Buddha attained enlightenment over 2,500 years ago. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations.
