An uncle has been convicted of kidnapping, raping and slitting the throat of his niece before putting her body in a deep freezer.

Mujahid Arshid, 33, was found guilty at the Old Bailey of murdering Celine Dookhran, 20, and the attempted murder of a second woman.

Arshid, 28, snatched the women in July before taking them to a house in Kingston, south west London.

His co-accused, Vincent Tappu, 28, was cleared of kidnapping charges.

Both defendants were cleared of possession of a firearm with intent for allegedly using a Taser during the abduction, which took place on 19 July, 2017.

Arshid has also been convicted of sexual assault charges against the second woman between 2008 and 2010

Members of Ms Dookhran’s family shouted “yes” when Arshid was convicted of her murder.

Arshid reacted by shouting out that the surviving victim had “killed them all”, while Mr Tappu – in tears – thanked the jury.
