Former model Divya Pahuja has been found dead at a hotel in Haryana's Gurugram. Abhijeet Singh, who is the owner of City Point Hotel in Gurugram, allegedly killed her on the night of Tuesday (January 2). The Gurugram police have arrested Abhijeet and two others - Prakash and Indraj - in connection with the murder. Both Prakash and Indraj used to work in Abhijeet's hotel.

As per reports, Abhijeet allegedly killed Divya and offered Rs 10 lakh to his workers to dispose off her dead body. A CCTV video also came to fore in which Abhijeet and others were seen dragging Divya's body. They were also captured in another CCTV camera while fleeing from the hotel in a blue BMW car, carrying Divya's body in the boot.

During the investigation, Abhijeet revealed that Divya had some of his objectionable photos and videos. She was extorting money from him on pretext of making the photos viral. Gurugram Police have registered a case of murder against Abhijeet and others on the basis of complaint filed by her family members.

Who was Divya Pahuja?

Divya Pahuja was a model and girlfriend of slain gangster Sandeep Gadoli. She was 18 when she was staying with Gadoli at a hotel room where the Haryana police killed the gangster in 2016. While the cops maintained that they had opened fire at Gadoli in self-defense, their version of chain of events was demolished as CCTV camera recordings showed the gangster unarmed.

It was alleged that Divya's mother Sonia Pahuja had shared details of Gadoli's whereabouts with the cops, following which he was shot dead. Following the controversial encounter, Divya, her mother and some police officers were arrested and charged.
