Ravish Rao Fakhoo and Kamlesh Mansingh, both 25, were remanded in custody after appearing in court in Port Louis on Tuesday.

They first appeared in court last Tuesday.

A Mauritius Police Force spokesman said: “A provisional charge of murder has been lodged against them.

“No plea has been entered at this stage.

“They have been remanded to police cells until July 25. The inquiry is still ongoing.”

The men are from the Quatre Bornes area of the Indian Ocean island.

A third suspect, Anish Soneea, 18, appeared in court on Friday and was remanded until July 21.

Ms Farman, originally thought to be from Clydebank, West Dunbartonshire, was working as managing director for data capture firm PECS Data Services in Mauritius before she was murdered.
