Chinese authorities have ordered a probe after a corpse was found in a room at the Guzang Shuhua Inn hotel, located in Tibet’s capital city, Lhasa. The hotel is also known as an influencer hotel on Chinese social media due to its picturesque location and ideal spots for photos.
According to local media, a person named Zhang had checked into a room at the hotel on April 21 and noticed a strong smell. Despite this, he stayed in the room for three hours before leaving for sightseeing. When he returned to the room, the smell had grown stronger, and he asked the hotel authorities to shift him to another room.
A few hours later, the hotel staff informed him that the police were waiting at his previous room, where they had found a body under the bed he had slept on earlier that day. The police took his DNA samples and informed him that they had arrested a suspect in connection with the case.
The Guzang Shuhua Inn hotel has since issued an apology, stating that they will cooperate fully with the authorities’ investigation. The incident has sparked concern among Chinese social media users, with many expressing shock and outrage at the hotel’s lack of security measures.
The authorities have yet to release any further details about the case, including the identity of the victim and the suspect’s motive. This incident serves as a tragic reminder of the importance of safety and security measures in hotels and other public spaces, and the need for vigilance and caution when travelling.
