Bollywood Actress Kidnapped And Beheaded By Actors Young Bollywood actress Meenakshi Thapar was allegedly kidnapped and beheaded by two struggling actors in attempt to extort £20,000 from her family.

Meenakshi Thapar, 26, who had appeared in the Indian horror film 404 last year, met the two aspiring actors who allegedly later killed her on the set of her latest film, Heroine.
Amit Jaiswal, 36, and his lover Preeti Surin, allegedly decided to kidnap Ms Thapar after listening to her boast about her familys wealth and status in Dehra Dun, in the Himalayan foothills of northern India.
They allegedly invited her on a trip with them to Gorakhpur, a small town close to Indias border with Nepal and known for its Buddhist temples, where they held her hostage and sent a message to Ms Thapars Nepali parents demanding 1,500,000 Rupees (£18,000).
According to police, her fellow actors warned her mother they would force her daughter to take part in pornography films if their demands were not met.
Her mother paid 60,000 Rupees (£730) into her daughters account for her kidnappers to withdraw, but she was allegedly killed soon after. She was strangled to death, beheaded, and her body was dumped at two different sites as her killers made their way back to Mumbai. Her torso was dumped in a water tank and her head thrown out of the bus window in a bag on the road to Mumbai.

This is outside my experience with Indian people. They, for the most part, have more values than many Americans I know.
But these were turd burglars so values don’t enter into the equation.
“Amit Jaiswal, 36, and his lover Preeti Surin, allegedly decided to kidnap Ms Thapar after listening to her boast about her familys wealth ... “
how soon before obama’s class warfare desires have a similar end result in this country with his OWS fanatics thinking this sort of thing is permissible??
They say it’s tough to get ahead in the film biz.
Because of my experience, I always require prepayment from Indian clients. Every Indian businessman that didn’t prepay stiffed my company (probably 5).
Truly awful. RIP poor girl.
Sadly, this will probably be made into a movie in the future.
They probably weren’t Hindi, Sikh, or any of the other Indian faiths. They probably weren’t Christian either...
Still not smart to talk about your personal wealth. Better off to act humble about it and not call attention to yourself. But I hope these two bastards have their testicles cut off and then are fed to hungry wild pigs like in that Hannibal movie.
>>They say its tough to get ahead in the film biz.<<
I won’t chastise you, but I can’t see any humor in this awful event.
The depths of evil of the human soul continue to shock me, although after 9/11 one would think it is impossible.
Caste? Gendercide? Laws against Christian evangelization? Culinary Hygiene Issues? Really?
Wow, I didn’t know that India had any homosexual Amish.
Oh, this could never happen the same way here. There would have been a VERY big fine for littering, for one thing...
This is hideous, a horror movie come true.
My sympathies to this young woman’s family.
They’d be busier than a one-armed wallpaper hanger in Hollywierd!
Maybe the Thuggee cult is having a revival.
Or maybe criminals are just stupid and vicious the world over.
Are you surprised that not everyone shares your hatred, bias and stereotype of Indians?
Appalling, poor girl. RIP.
For whatever cultural reasons, I was not exposed to any preconceptions about the Indian people. My dealings with them are altogether in the computer development field, so they are the educated among the Indian people. What I have experienced, is simply this:
1) They have honor, that I have seen.
2) They cannot program worth a damn. Well, no, they can program, but they don’t challenge your assumptions, and they thusly give you exactly what you asked for, and what you asked for never will be what you need. Americans challenge your beliefs, to the point that we will cut through your assumptions and give you what you NEED, developmentwise.
3) They live by their words.
4) In negotiations, they cannot hear the word ‘No’. The fact you are still talking to them means the word ‘No’ was not uttered at all. I’ve had to hang up on recruiters before, to express the word ‘No’ with a deed that reinforced the concept.
Its worth remembering there are over a billion Indians in the world. They are not all the same. Just when you think you know them all and figured them all out, you will find someone who does not conform to your assumptions.
Nice try. Identifying filthy cultural traits is not a bias or hatred. Are we supposed to stay quiet on caste, gendercide, and shabby dress and rituals?
C'mon. It's 1.2 billion people who have the same mixture of good and evil in them as other people.
Sure, it's possible that some hardworking Indian is more honest than an American who's never had to work hard, but haven't you heard of families killing their daughters-in-law and keeping the dowry? It happens a lot in India.
My experience is they have a overt fondness for money that sometimes lands them in trouble. I can’t tell you the number of times an Indian contract worker has disappeared because someone offered him $2 more an hour. They will live in hellhole to save a little money.
I could have used better judgment, I suppose. Guess I lost my head.
The issue here is your attempt to generalise every Indian with those stereotypes. Not every Indian practices castism or gendercide.
Shabby dress a huge problem for you?
Yes but then you will rarely see Indians ever going broke or living off welfare. Indians are WAY better at managing their finances. Americans also have a fondness for money. However the difference is..... Americans tend to spend money they don't have. One in 4 American has credit card debt larger then their emergency savings.
American tend to take far more vacation days then Indians. There are days when our work places has only Indians while all the Americans are off on vacation, holiday, baseball game, WFH.....
The Thuggees were gay? Well that explains why there were never any female thuggees around.
There is a bit of socio/cultural reason for that. Indians tend to keep their opinions to themselves, just go by what is asked. And keep the discussions to a minimum.
American, regardless of how much the really know about a subject, they all have strong opinions. A lot of Americans right from their schooling days are trained to have opinions rather then getting their facts correct. And Ameicans by cultural habit are very chatty and love to discuss everything to death.
The killer couple in the article are a heterosexual couple not gay.
Credit card company I worked for tells me to replicate an entire process, only make it for a slightly-differently behaving card.
Indian lead developer specs the work out, tells me to go ahead and implement the replicated process, gives me a week to do it and a week to test it.
I look at it in my cube. I come back to the Indian lead in about an hour, and say, "It's done."
He looks at me and says, "It cannot be done yet."
I smile. "It's done."
"How?" he asked.
I said, "I put a switch-variable on the final SQL procedure. Treat it one way for card A, the other way for card B. Keep the original, tested, dependable process and switch at the end."
Everyone was thrilled.
Americans challenge assumptions.
Of course not. But as Prof. Sowell writes we do make generalized comments with respect to Japanese, Irish, English, French and yes Pakistani and Indian traits. No reason to be super sensitive about this. Often times cultural traits are embedded with religious rituals and practices.
Yes but you seem to be a little extra sensitive about their lack of fashion sense. Are you part of the Gay Pride Fashion Nazi storm trooper squad by any chance? In that case yeah, Indians tend be the “terrorists” of the fashion world.
As the saying goes in Rome, one does as the Romans do. One does not come to the west and walk about in slippers and sandals and shabbily dressed and commit first degree murder of the Queen’s English in an accent that would make the frogs croak.
Americans can barely spell. So much for murdering the Queen’s English. And accents? Really? Have you heard the Aussies? If you understand them and not the Indians, its because you’re just not listening :)
Mostly when those are someone else’s assumptions. Americans are not very good at questioning their own assumptions. A good example of that is the story of Edison and Tesla.
Americans in general have much more ego issues then Indians. Americans can be far more stubborn and head strong, they stick to their guns even when they are completely wrong. Indians are far more docile when it comes to defending their position. Indians try to be congenial and avoid unnecessary confrontation that might sour the relationship.
Also Americans always feel the need to prove something and brag about it. A lot of Americans don't realize, their ego is very evident to an outsider when they start talking about how America are best in everything, everytime. Lot of foreigners find that very annoying. Indians mostly don't care about proving they are right or being the best in everything, they just quietly do their job and collect their paychecks.
So what do you want Indians to wear? Hoodies and pjs hanging below their asses?
Dont Americans wear slippers and sandals? I dont quite understand your dislike for slippers and sandals. You got some foot fetish or something?
“and commit first degree murder of the Queens English in an accent that would make the frogs croak.”
Funny thing is most people in the US dont even understand the “English Accent”. An average school kid has trouble reading basic English let alone speak Queen's English. And on the street, Spanish and Spanglish is the norm not Queen's English.
Yes, you make some good points. But your example are with respect to small sub-groups. My observations were about the average Indian. Folks like Jindal and Nikki Haley are the exceptions because they were mainly raised in the US.
Dude, I came onto this thread friendly with the Indian people, but you are converting me quick.
None of the above. Butt sharks.
The use of ‘actor’ throughout the article suggests the killers were both male.
Since it was just me you were responding to, wouldn’t it be butt-shark?
If you prefer it, why not? Since you’ve assumed the role of spelling cop, perhaps you wouldn’t mind telling ravager the difference between ‘then’ and ‘than’. Have a good weekend.
From you post #34, I surmise you are a SE, not a coder.
If you want to complete your conversion, read the comments addressed to myself and cronos on the value of logical skills, programming skills, experience, using the proper tools, knowledgeable management, and americans in IT.
Yeah. Even when doing so would completely mess up their client's system, cost too much, or not meed the customer's true needs.
If I want a system cheap, I'll hire the Indians. If I want a system done RIGHT, I'll hire those egotistical Americans.
