  • U.S. tourist killed by endangered Indian tribe after travelling to ‘preach Christianity’

An American national has been allegedly killed by people belonging to the protected Sentinelese Tribes in the North Sentinel Island, sources said Wednesday, even as the USA consulate maintained he was "missing". Seven fishermen who took 27-year-old John Allen Chau to North Sentinel Island, where the indigenous Sentinelese people live, have been arrested, the police said.

Chau was attacked with bows and arrows after he landed on the island on November 16, the fishermen told the police. One of the officials said: "A murder case has been registered".

Singh said the man was killed on Saturday.

"Instead, a few months ago the authorities lifted one of the restrictions that had been protecting the Sentinelese tribe's island from foreign tourists, which sent exactly the wrong message, and may have contributed to this bad event. I hope this tragedy acts as a wake-up call to the Indian authorities to avert another disaster and properly protect the lands of both the Sentinelese, and the other Andaman tribes, from further invaders". Two days later he went well prepared.

Also called the Sentineli or North Sentinel Islanders, they are known to be hunters and gatherers who survive through fishing, hunting and collecting wild plants. The fishermen saw the tribals tying a rope around his neck and dragging his body.

Taking cognisance of the matter, a spokeswoman for the USA consulate in Chennai told Reuters, "We are aware of reports concerning a United States citizen in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands".

An American citizen is believed to have been killed after illegally traveling to an isolated island in the Bay of Bengal populated by uncontacted tribes. He left the dingy midway and took a canoe all by himself to the island. "The exact population of the tribe is not known, but it is declining".

Visits to the island, which is part of the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago, are heavily restricted by the government.

One of the police sources said Chau, who had made previous visits to the islands, had a strong desire to meet the Sentinelese. The body has not been retrieved yet.

They were filmed firing arrows at a helicopter back in 2004 and killed two fishermen who drifted accidentally into their waters in 200.
