Udayan Das, who admitted to have killed and entombed his girlfriend in Bhopal, took inspiration from the drama series Hollywood film Devil’s Knot. “He got the idea bury Akansha Sharma under a marble tomb by watching these,” Bankura Superintendent of Police Sukhendu Hira said.

Das had been brought to Bankura. Reportedly, around 2,500 CDs of Hollywood films and television series, mostly based on crime, were found in his flat.

Udayan had killed Akansha allegedly in December 2016, but the case came to light when West Bengal Police reached Bhopal to look for her, following a complaint filed by her father Shivendra Sharma.

Udayan had befriended the Akansha on social media and during questioning; he had said that after a clash, he strangled Akansha in a fit of rage. The accused had also admitted to have killed his parents in 2012 and buried them in the garden of their home.

“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,” said a police officer.

Later it has come to light that Udayan has no friends. “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,” said the officer.

As per the Police, he had killed his parents for “financial gain”. However, the reason behind killing Akansha is still not clear, an 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.”

As per the sources Udayan had also withdrawn cash from Akansha’s account. As per a report in Indian Express, Akansha’s brother Ayush Satyam, said, “She was not his live-in partner. Udayan Das had promised to help her get a job. She just knew him through social media.”
