A woman photo-journalism student has been arrested along with two male accomplices on charges of killing a boxer who she alleged had been blackmailing her, police said on Friday.

Srishti Gupta was arrested on Thursday, four days after boxer Jitendra Mann was found dead in a flat here, Superintendent of Police Sunita Singh said.

The girl reportedly told the police that she and her accomplices shot dead Mann at his AVJ Heights flat. She then fled the crime scene.

Gupta reportedly became a friend of the 27-year-old boxer at a gym where he would help her in the workouts. He allegedly then filmed her in a compromising position.

The boxer was allegedly blackmailing the young woman and despite several requests did not delete the offending video clip.

Two others, Imran and Nafees, have also been arrested.

A graduate in Business Administration, the woman was pursuing a photo-journalism course from the Chowdhary Charan Singh University.
