In his words, ‘F*ck me over, this is what happens.’
The dead body of 19-year-old Celine Dookhran was found inside the freezer of a house in July last year and now a 33-year-old man has been charged with her murder. Who was this man? Her obsessed ‘uncle’ who decided that if he couldn’t have her then nobody else could too. The accused, Mujahid Arshid along with his employee Vincent Tappu first kidnapped her from her house in London, raped her and then slit her throat. He then hid the dead body inside the freezer. One of Celine’s friends was also kidnapped with her but she managed to survive.
According to the police, when accused Arshid realised that his niece was ‘far from his clutches’ because she was in a relationship with a Libyan Muslim guy, he decided to rape and kill her. Before he raped her, he tied her hands and legs with tape and said, “f*ck me over, this is what happens.” He said to the other man, “Get the b**** when she comes out of the bathroom.”
Celine’s friend saw the other man moving towards the bathroom with a taser (an electroshock weapon) in hand followed by Arshid. She also heard Celine scream at this point. According to the police the accused had planned to kidnap both the women, rape them and then dispose of their bodies. He wanted to either destroy their dead bodies with acid or conceal them in a freezer.
Both the girls had socks stuffed inside their mouths and their mouths were covered with tape and their hands and feet were tied. He first kidnapped them and took them to a 13-crore house in which he was working as a builder. After raping them and killing his niece he took the other woman upstairs and slit her throat too and told her that “she will die in 10 minutes.”
He thought that it might take months before anyone would open the freezer in the unoccupied house But luckily, the other victim survived and alerted the police.
