Udayan Das, who confessed to have killed and buried his girlfriend in Bhopal, was inspired by Hollywood movie ‘Devil’s Knot’ and the drama series Crime Scene.
Bankura Superintendent of Police Sukhendu Hira said:
“He got the idea bury Akansha Sharma under a marble tomb by watching these,”
Police have also recovered around 2,500 CDs of Hollywood films and TV series that were mostly based on crime from his house. Udayan also confessed to have murdered his parents back in 2012 and buried them in a garden at their residence.
Police officer further added-: “Das had 100 email accounts and 100 Facebook profiles… He tried to establish that he was very rich. He purportedly brainwashed Akansha using his fake identity, He was an introvert and was often bullied by his friends in Bhopal for his physical appearance… Later, he went on to hack the Orkut profiles of two of his friends… They had to delete their profiles. Udayan considered this an achievement… He is a very sharp with extensive knowledge of computers… As he was bullied, he may have developed such a destructive personality,”
Also, the motive behind killing Akansha is still not clear as a police officer said: “He is a hard nut to crack and we need time to find out the exact motive… We believe it was a cold blooded murder… Udayan was confident of keeping the woman’s murder under wraps since he had already murdered his parents… He was using all their money and properties.”
