"All we seek is justice for Sarah"

Sarah Groves' family and friends are asking for help from those who knew her as they search for the "missing pieces of the puzzle", seven years on from her murder in Kashmir.

They are asking that anyone who was in contact with Sarah while she was travelling in India - between December 2012 and April 2013 - get in touch.

The request was posted on the 'Justice for Sarah Groves' Facebook page ahead of the anniversary of her death, yesterday.

"Even if you think the message/conversation you had with her is irrelevant, it may help us to fit the missing pieces of the puzzle together," said a spokesperson for the page.

They are also looking to speak with anyone who met Sarah in India or Dal Lake and may have more information.

"We are just trying to gather as much information as possible," the spokesperson continued. "You many have information that might help us without even realising it.

"All we seek is justice for Sarah. We are so close right now."

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Facebook page directly, or email Vic Groves on

Ahead of the anniversary of his daughter's murder, Mr Groves said: "‘Justice for Sarah’ is as far away as it ever was but we will never give up seeking the truth. As in all such situations – someone knows what happened that night!"

There are two court hearings scheduled for this coming week but the corona virus pandemic means they are likely to be cancelled.

"The two hearings scheduled for next week on Wednesday 8 and Thursday 9 April 2020 are unlikely to proceed due to the corona virus lockdown in force throughout India, including Kashmir.

"Further details will be provided when available," said Mr Groves.
