New Delhi:

The body of former model Divya Pahuja, who was shot dead in a Gurgaon hotel last week, has been found in a Haryana canal. Police said that the body had been thrown in Bhakra canal in Punjab and had drifted to the neighbouring state.

The body was recovered by a team of the Gurugram Police from Haryana’s Tohna. Cops said that they sent photos to Pahuja’s family, who identified her body. The body has been sent for an autopsy.

One of the accused had yesterday confessed that he had dumped her body in a canal in Punjab on January 3, a day after her alleged murder.

Balraj Gill, who was arrested from Kolkata airport last evening when he was trying to board a flight, told the police during his interrogation that he disposed of the former model’s body in a canal in Patiala, which is about 270 kilometres from Gurugram, where she was allegedly murdered on January 2.

Divya Pahuja was killed at a Gurgaon hotel on January 2, with CCTV footage showing killers dragging her body out of the hotel to a car.

The 27-year-old was taken to a hotel room by five men. She was shot in the head as she had allegedly been blackmailing the hotel owner with his obscene pictures, police said.

Sources said Pahuja allegedly had some obscene videos of the hotel owner Abhijeet Singh on her phone which he asked her to delete, but she refused. The former model was allegedly blackmailing with the photos and this led to Singh and at least two of his aides shooting her. Pahuja’s family has vehemently denied this charge.

Divya Pahuja was in jail for her alleged involvement in the fake encounter of her then-boyfriend and Gurugram gangster Sandeep Gadoli in 2016. She had been granted bail in June last year.
