A Muslim teenager was kidnapped, raped and murdered in the UK last week.

The body of Celine Dookhran, 19, was found stuffed in a fridge at a gated six-bedroom house in Kingston-upon-Thames in south London on July 19, The Guardian reported.

She was allegedly tasered before being driven to the £1.5 million (S$2.7 million) house, according to British publication Evening Standard.

Prosecutors claimed the Indian Muslim teen was raped and attacked for being in a relationship with an Arab Muslim. She was subsequently murdered in what is suspected to be an 'honour killing'. 

A post-mortem examination revealed the cause of Ms Dookhran's death was a neck wound, said a BBC report.

She wasn't the only victim in the attack.

An older woman in her 20s was also kidnapped but she managed to escape and called the police for help. She was found with her throat slashed, according to several media outlets.

The survivor claims she heard her friend scream as she was dragged from the shower and stunned with a taser.

The victims were bound with cable wires, duct tape and had socks shoved into their mouths before they were thrown into a vehicle by their attackers, who had donned balaclavas.

Two men, also from the UK, have been charged in court.

Mujahid Arshid, 33, is accused of murdering Dookhran. He has also been charged with the rape, attempted murder and kidnap of the second victim.

Vincent Tappu, 28, is charged with the kidnap of both women.

The brutal murder of Dookhran grabbed headlines not only in the UK alone but other parts of the world too.

Netizens took to social media to pay their tributes to the slain teenager.

Dookhran, who was born and raised in the UK, had a passion for make-up and offered cosmetic advice to her followers on social media, said the BBC.
