An Indian Muslim woman, Celine Dookhran, 19, was kidnapped, raped and murdered in London in a suspected honour killing case.

On Wednesday, masked men kidnapped the two women and took them to a house in South West London where they raped them and Dookhran was killed.

Her throat was slit and body stuffed inside the fridge before being found after the other woman who was attacked raised an alarm from her hospital bed. Dookhran was said to have started a relationship with an Arab man.

Bikinis not Burkas | 3 years ago | Reply DNA evidence says it was them!
Faisal | 3 years ago | Reply Sick people! Pls. reintroduce the death penalty in UK for these 2 horrible men! And to the young men and women, Muslims - there is no point in having "relationships" outside of the permissible ones. It always ends in hurt and pain and in extreme cases like this, utter devastation and murder! She was only 19 and murdered brutally. Condolences to her and her grieving family. What a tragedy.
