Chiang Mai police were called to a downtown hotel on Chang Khlan Road yesterday after a 45 year old Indian man was found dead in bed.

Police suspect murder as Indian foundA Thai woman who checked in with him on Sunday has disappeared.

The victim was Tariq Bat Amat who was wearing a short sleeved white shirt and black underwear. He had been dead about 12 hours. There were no injuries on the body but Sanook reported he was foaming at the mouth.

At the head of the bed was a coffee cup with the contents consumed. The deceased documents were in his wallet along with 50 baht.

But the rest of his valuables had gone missing.

Police Captain (lady) Monrisa Bunkam discovered that Mr Amat had checked into Room 304 with the Thai woman on Sunday at 6pm.

At 7pm she ordered a coffee and bread and jam.

When Mr Amat did not check out as planned on Tuesday a maid was sent to open the room with the spare key and made the discovery.

Police believe it is likely that this is a case or murder. They believe the victim could have been poisoned with something added to the coffee before his possessions were taken.

The body was sent for autopsy at Maharat Nakorn Hospital and the remains of the coffee are being forensically examined.

They are actively searching for the women who has disappeared.

The Indian embassy has been informed.

Sanook did not say if the victim was a tourist.
