‘Evil’ builder, 33, ‘raped his niece, 20, then slit her throat

An ‘utterly wicked and obsessed’ builder raped his niece before slitting her throat and hiding her body in a padlocked freezer, a court heard today.

Builder Mujahid Arshid, 33, and his employee Vincent Tappu, 28, allegedly kidnapped Celine Dookhran, 20, and another victim on July 19 last year.

The pair stuffed socks into the women’s mouths and bound their hands and feet before Ashid put them in the boot of a car wrapped in dust sheets and took them to a £1.5 million six-bedroom south west London house he was working on, the Old Bailey heard.
