A 20-year-old model was killed by an aspiring photographer for saying no to sex, according to reports. Syed Muzammil, 19, hit Mansi Dixit on the head with a wooden stool when she refused to have sex with him in Oshiwara, India, it is alleged.
Mansi then fell unconscious before Muzammil allegedly molested and tried to rape her. He then allegedly strangled her, stuffed the body in a bag, and booked a taxi, the Hindustani Times reports.
When the driver asked why his bag was so heavy, he cancelled the taxi, reports said. He then reportedly booked a different car which took him to a back road where he dumped the bag.
The driver phoned police who discovered the body, reports said. Reports claim Muzammil had known Mansi for a number of days and thought she was attractive.
The murder allegedly took place at his home on October 15 last year.
According to reports, Muzammil said in a police interrogation: “I called her on the pretext of a photoshoot and demanded to have sex with her. “When she refused, I hit her on the head with a wooden stool.”
Muzammil was arrested at his home.
