They claim he told investigators they had known the victim and had devised a plan to burgle her home, which officers are now investigating. .

Ms Farman was killed in the early hours of 7 July in front of her 10-year-old autistic son.

A post-mortem examination indicated that she died as a result of asphyxiation caused by compression of the neck, according to the BBC.

The British Foreign Office has said it is in contact with local authorities in Mauritius about the case.
