Arshid murdered his niece and slit another woman’ s throat (Elizabeth Cook/PA). A “psycho” builder has been found guilty of abducting, raping and cutting the throats of Arshid bought a freezer for the Kingston house to hide the bodies so they would not be found until long after he had fled the country.

Arshid had bought the freezer to place in the house, so the bodies would not be found until after he had fled the country.

"He brought Celine down in a bag, picked her up and put her into the chest freezer," she said.

"All I could see was her legs sticking out. I had to act like it was not affecting me."

When Arshid's wife demanded to know where their niece was on WhatsApp, Arshid initially told her: "How do I know. She's the one that ran off."

She replied: "You would stoop that low. You're the p***y."

Arshid then said: "Whatever I may be, you made me. I'll call you from Pakistan."

But when his wife told him not to and that he was "dead to me", he retorted: "So is Celine apparently."

Arshid was arrested at a Holiday Inn in Folkestone. When he was formally charged by police, Arshid told them to "look at the evidence and keep an open mind".

He told police the surviving woman had killed Ms Dookhran in a fit of rage after he had consensual sex with both of them.

He claimed she was injured when she attacked him but they struggled over the knife.

His account was at odds with an examination of Ms Dookhran's body, as she was found with a sock stuffed in her mouth, and a knife wound that her cut through her throat and tape on her head.

Ms Dookhran and the survivor had the same injuries, and could not have been inflicted during a struggle.

The jury deliberated for 14 hours before delivering the guilty verdicts.

Ms Dookhran's family shouted "yes" when the verdict was returned.
