Chilling moment ’psycho’ uncle drives off with kidnap victims in the boot before he raped and murdered his niece

THIS is the chilling moment a rapist uncle drives off with his two victims including his niece in the boot before raping both and murdering his relative.

Mujahid Arshid, 33, was today jailed for at least 40 years after he was convicted of murdering 20-year-old Celine Dookhran and the attempted murder of the other woman.

Cheers were heard as the builder was led from the dock in the Old Bailey today.

Evil Arshid raped both women in turn and slit Celine's throat before bundling her into a chest freezer at a house he was renovating in Kingston, South West London.

He cut the throat of the second victim too – but she stopped him killing her by pretending she was in love with him.

The court heard how 33-year-old Arshid snatched the women in July last year and bundled them into a pick-up truck bound and gagged to be taken to the house.

Vincent Tappu, 28, had been accused of helping kidnap the girls but he was cleared by the jury.

The grim footage released by the Metropolitan Police shows Arshid driving with both his gagged and bound victims in the boot of a car.

He can be seen checking to see if the boot lid is shut properly before climbing into the driver's seat and speeding off.

Arshid stood silently with his hand on the chin as the verdicts were announced but relatives of the victim screamed "yes" as he was convicted of murdering Ms Dookhran.

The judge replied: "Just be quiet please, I understand emotions are running high."

Tappu was in tears and thanked the jury after they acquitted him of kidnap, false imprisonment and possession of a firearm with intent, namely a Taser.

Celine moved in with Arshid a few weeks before she was murdered.

Arshid came into her room wearing just a towel and insisted on getting dressed in front of her.

Both victims had boyfriends and when he realised he decided to put his "bizarre and terrible" plans into action.

On his laptop he had searched for "sulphuric acid" and "at what temperature would humans freeze to death within in less than five minutes."

A week before the killing Arshid had Googled "how to cut up a human body," "butchering the human carcass" and "what's the best way to dispose of a human body".

He bought the chest freezer from Gumtree for £30 installed it at the £1.5m property in Kingston-on-Thames.

The women were snatched on July 19 last year. Wearing a balaclava he burst into the house threatened the women with a lock knife, and stuffed socks into their mouths which were secured with tape.

Their hands and feet were tied together with rope and they were both wrapped in builder's dust sheet.

Arshid tried to make it look like the women had left home but was so sexually fixated he grabbed handfuls of underwear.

Both women were loaded into the back Ashid's blue Nissan Navara pick-up truck and driven eight miles from Mitcham to a six-bedroom house he was renovating in Kingston.

He tied them to the pipes in the utility room then raped both women in the bedroom before taking Celine back upstairs.

Arshid slashed her throat in the bathroom with the sock still stuffed in her mouth before he put her body in the freezer.

The builder wrapped tape around the surviving victim's body so that her arms were pinned to her sides.

She was then also taken upstairs into the bathroom where she saw Celine's body lying under plastic sheeting on the floor.

Surviving victim's family speak out after verdicts

"MUJAHID Arshid tried to destroy the life of the surviving victim ever since she met him, he has manipulated and lied repeatedly, and continued this throughout the trial. 

"He persistently fabricated the truth and attempted to deceive the courts and the same can be said of those that have supported him during the course of this trial.

"More so, Arshid, by pleading not guilty, ensured that the surviving victim would have to relive that horrific day in minuscule detail during the course of this trial.

"He showed not an ounce of remorse throughout this trial, in spite of the hurt and pain he purposefully caused. He should hang his head in shame.

"We would like to give a special mention to Celine Dookhran who was tragically murdered by Mujahid Arshid. She was an amazingly brilliant, talented, kind, loving and innocent person. She will be always remembered and loved."

Detective Chief Inspector Sam Price, led the investigation for the Homicide and Major Crime Command, she said: "This was a sexually motivated attack of unspeakable violence and horror which ended in one murder, with a second surviving victim suffering serious injuries and ongoing trauma.

"Throughout the trial, Arshid's attempts to deflect blame from himself have been deplorable. I am glad the jury have seen through his lies and have convicted him of these horrific crimes."

Tappu, of Acton, who was employed by Arshid as labourer, was cleared of kidnap, false imprisonment, and possession of a firearm with intent.

Arshid, of Mitcham, denied but was convicted of murder, attempted murder, two counts of rape, two of kidnap, sexual assault and assault by penetration.'psycho'%20uncle%20drives%20off%20with%20victims%20in%20boot%20before%20niece's%20rape%20murder” target=”_blank” title=”Click to share on Twitter
