Father arrested for 'killing man he caught taking pictures of his daughter'

By The Mirror | February 10th 2015

A British man has been arrested on suspicion of killing an alleged paedophile who he caught taking photographs of his young daughter.

Kainth Davinder, 40, was arrested by police on Saturday night after he allegedly attacked Sandro Rottman while the two were at Spinnaker restaurant in Sotogrande, an exclusive resort on southern Spain's Costa del Sol.

According to police, that the 43-year-old victim had been charged with possession of child pornography days before.

It is not known if Davinder knew this at the time of the alleged attack.

A spokeswoman for the Civil Guard said that Davinder had appeared before a magistrate and been remanded in custody accused of homicide.

She said: "The discussion apparently began because of alleged recordings that the victim was making of the aggressor's daughter.

"When he (the aggressor) saw what was happening he took the tablet off him, saw the recordings, threw the device to the ground and attacked him.

"The victim had been arrested by the Civil Guard a few days ago for possession of child pornography."

Davinder allegedly asked Rottman on several occasions to stop filming his daughter, thought to be younger than eight, but the German national persisted, the spokeswoman added.

When officers arrived at the scene they found Rottman with "very serious" wounds, although it is understood no weapons were used during the attack.

He was taken to a hospital in nearby La Linea de la Concepcion but died there.

Davinder, who is understood to live in Sotogrande, left the restaurant after the assault but was later identified thanks to witnesses.

Rottman had been arrested in Spain in January over child pornography claims and was awaiting trial.

A post-mortem examination has been carried out and authorities are awaiting results to determine how he died.

Sotogrande is one of Spain's most upmarket resorts and is known for large houses overlooking the Mediterranean and golf courses such as the world-famous Valderrama Club.

A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: "We are urgently investigating reports of the arrest of a British national in the Cadiz area in southern Spain.

"We stand ready to provide consular assistance if requested."
