Meraj Zafar,(pictured here with Arnima) is accused of killing her and dumping her body in a bathtub of acid.
The hearse carrying Arnima’s green coffin arrived at Rookwood’s Muslim section and eight pall bearers, including Arnima’s father and uncle carried it to the graveside.

Arnima’s parents Mahafuza and Abu (below, outside their Lakemba home) said their daughter was ‘an Aussie girl’ who loved KFC, sushi and pies and took her family out every week until she met Zafar.
Arnima scored more than 97 in her HSC at Tempe High School before going on to study medicine at the University of Western Sydney and told her parents (below with Arnima) she planned to become a surgeon.
‘She loved make-up and she liked taking photos and selfies and videos,’ mum said.
