Two eunuchs murdered for property

A 36-year-old man, along with his two associates, allegedly killed his eunuch cousin, who was heading a sect that has properties worth crores of rupees, and another eunuch and burnt their bodies to acquire their wealth.

The eunuchs - Ranjitha, the head of the Dera in Manju Ka Tila in north Delhi, and Sharmila, were murdered by the trio in a span of 10 days in Sriganganagar in Rajasthan and in Muradnagar in Uttar Pradesh in April-May this year.

Laxman, a cousin of Ranjitha, and his associates Satish and Paras, who were also working in the Dera at Manju Ka Tila, murdered the duo to acquire their wealth which runs into crores of rupees.

‘Ranjita’s Dera has territorial control over eunuchs in Delhi, Sri Ganganagar of Rajasthan and Hoshiarpur of Punjab and Laxman’s plan was to eventually become the head of the Dera and enjoy a lavish lifestyle,’ Chhaya Sharma, Deputy Commissioner of Police, South District, said.

While Ranjitha’s burnt body was recovered from Sriganganagar on 28 April, the body of Sharmila was found burnt in Muradnagar on 8 May. During interrogation, police came to know that Ranjitha used Laxman to acquire many properties and wealth in several parts of Delhi and Rajasthan with the money the dera got from fellow eunuchs. Laxman has been working in the Dera for the last 14 years and was very close to Ranjitha.

‘Laxman along with his close friend Satish and Paras hatched a conspiracy to eliminate Ranjitha and other powerful member of this Dera ultimately to become the head of this Dera to lead a lavish life style,’ she said.

According to the plan, the trio strangulated Ranjita then transported her dead body to Sri Ganganagar where it was burnt.

‘Next morning, the accused told others that their Guru has been eliminated and threatened them with dire consequences if they raise their voice,’ she said.

When Sharmila, a close confidant of the deceased, spoke against them, the trio forcibly took her and hammered her to death. ‘The body of Sharmila was packed in a suitcase and dumped on the highway near Muradnagar. Then, it was burnt,’ police said. During their arrest, police also recovered an English pistol with three live cartridges, a van, mobile phone, Rs 3 lakh in cash and gold jewellery from their possession.
