Reportedly, the accused Junior artists - Amit Kumar Jaiswal and Preeti Elvina Surin, allegedly befriended Thapa on the sets of Heroine. Police sources informed a leading daily that Thapa initially cooked up a story that she belonged to a rich family and wanted to try her luck in Bollywood as a hobby.
Lured by this, the accused chalked out a cold-blooded plan to kidnap Thapa. They were finally successful in convincing the actress with a big modelling assignment and then took her to UP. Later, they killed the actress by strangulating her. They dumped her body there and chopped off her head.
After investigating deep into the case, the cops finally nabbed the accused who later confessed their deadly crime.
