The Tinder Murder
A young mad been murdered in May in India by his Tinder date along side her male accomplices, after they found out that he wasn’t rich as he had portrayed on the internet.
Now, in a new interview with Deepika Bhardwaj, an activist and documentary filmmaker, Priya Seth, 27, the main accused has revealed the chilling details of the abduction and murder of 27-year-old Dushyant Sharma.
According to her, she needed money but the victim faked being a rich person so she killed him. Priya who was unremorseful in the interview said she and her accomplices, Dikshant and Lakshya smothered him with a pillow, cut his throat before stuffing his body in a suitcase and dumping his body along the Jaipur-Delhi highway.
“He (Dushyant) told me he was very rich and I was living in with Dikshant (the other accused in the case) and he had a debt of 21 lakhs. He was looking for someone to get that money from. So, we made this plan together that we will kidnap someone, ask for a ransom and then kill that person,” said Priya.
It was also learned that the victim’s father transferred some money into their account, but Priya and her gang later went ahead and killed him.
When she was asked why she killed Dushyant even when his father transferred some money into their account, Priya says in a jiffy: “We killed him even before we got the money.”
Revealing chilling details how they carried out the murder, she said:
“First Dikshant strangled him. He survived. Then, Lakshya (another accused in the case) smothered him with a pillow. He became unconscious but still didn’t die. Dikshant then asked me to get a knife and slit his throat. He died,” said Priya without a single sign of remorse on her face.
However, the other two accomplices contradicted her claim and said that she stabbed the deceased first.
