An Indian Muslim make up artist was dragged from the shower and Tasered before being raped and murdered in an alleged 'honour killing' because she fell in love with an Arab Muslim, a court has heard.
Celine Dookhran, 19, was found dead inside a £1.5million South London house after her friend managed to escape despite having her throat slit in the same attack.
The court was told Miss Dookhran had been in a relationship with an Arab Muslim and her family members did not approve because they were Indian Muslims.
The survivor, who is in her twenties, claims she heard her friend scream as she was dragged from the shower and stunned with a Taser before she herself was taken from her bed.
The victims were bound with duct tape and rope and had socks shoved into their mouths before being rolled up into dust sheets and thrown into a vehicle by two men in balaclavas.
They were driven five miles to a house under renovation before Miss Dookhran was raped and murdered – but the second woman fled.
Mujahid Arshid, 33, appeared before magistrates in Wimbledon yesterday charged with the murder, rape, and kidnap of Miss Dookhran and the attempted murder, rape and kidnap of the second woman. Vincent Tappu, 28, was charged with the kidnap of both.

Binita Roscoe, prosecuting, said two men in balaclavas stormed into a house near Wimbledon where Miss Dookhran was with her friend, who is in her twenties, last Wednesday morning.
Miss Dookhran was in the house with the woman, who is in her twenties, when they were both grabbed
She said the pair grabbed the teenager who was in the shower and the other woman who was in bed. A Taser was used to subdue them and they were tied up before being rolled bundled into a vehicle, she said.
The court heard they were driven five miles to a location in Kingston where they were raped.
Ms Roscoe, prosecuting, said: 'The deceased was involved in a relationship with an Arab Muslim and the family members didn't approve of this relationship because they are Indian Muslims.'
Two men in balaclavas entered the property on July 19, the prosecutor said. She told the court: 'Her face and mouth were covered in duct tape. Her hands were tied with cable ties and her feet were tied with rope.
'She believes a sock was placed in her mouth. She had heard the deceased who was in the shower screaming.'
The surviving victim said a sock was forced into her mouth and the kidnappers used a Taser to subdue both her and Ms Dookhran before they were rolled in dustsheets and bundled into a vehicle, said Ms Roscoe.
Miss Dookhran was the eldest of three children and born in Wandsworth in 1996.
Her passion was make-up and her nearly 3,500 tweets are packed with advice on using cosmetics - she also did the make-up for an A-Level film made at sixth form.
In her last message, posted a week before her death, she wrote: 'Alhamdulilah for everything that's all I can say' and she also liked a joke about finishing work on the eve of her murder.
She also posted messages when she passed her driving test in 2015 and would also tweet about her faith.
During Ramadan she wrote: 'Please tell me why I'm casually sitting in Costa during my lunch break whilst fasting.'
Police carried out an extensive investigation at the home in London and also subsequently charged Vincent Tappu, 28, with the kidnap of both women
Both Arshid and Tappu were remanded in custody. The court heard the murder at the property allegedly took place because Indian Muslim Miss Dookhran was in a relationship with an Arab Muslim
Bearded Arshid wore a grey prison-issue tracksuit, while his co-defendant wore a black suit and white shirt, with short black hair and a beard.
They were flanked by three dock officers. A young man and a woman sat in the packed public gallery during the hearing at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court.
A middle aged man and a woman, wearing a head scarf, sat in the well of the court, who Tappu nodded at.
District Judge James Henderson remanded Tappu, of Ealing, west London, and Arshid, who gave no fixed address, in custody.
Arshid will appear at the Old Bailey on Wednesday 28 July. Both men are due to appear at the same court on August 21.
Ms Dookrhan was born in Wandsworth, London in 1996 and her Twitter account points to her being a keen make-up artist.
A friend tweeted: 'It's never nice hearing news like this, RIP Celine, you were a beautiful soul and will be truly missed.'
