After a 29-year-old man matched with a 27-year-old woman on mobile dating app Tinder in Jaipur, little did he know it would be his ‘endgame.’

Priya Seth, with the help of her boyfriend and a friend, held Dushyant Sharma captive in a flat in Jaipur’s Bajaj Nagar, with the motive of extorting money from him, Hindustan Times reported.

As per the police, on Sharma’s dating profile his name was Vivan Kohli – ‘a Delhi resident who earned crores of rupees every month.’ However, when Seth and her accomplices found out that he was not that wealthy, they allegedly decided to butcher him.

“Seth also withdrew Rs 20,000 using Sharma’s ATM card,” Jhotwara Station House Officer Gur Bhupendra Singh told HT.

The three accused allegedly strangled Sharma and chopped his body into pieces last Wednesday. The suitcase the accused used to dispose of Sharma’s body was found in Amer near Jaipur on 3 May, the HT report said quoting police sources.

Seth had been involved in several other extortion and ATM theft cases in the past, the police added.
