Tired of getting fleeced by the man whom she thought loved her, Nisha, a eunuch, brutally murdered him on Thursday night. She has been arrested.

Police said Nisha's live-in partner Surender was stabbed on the abdomen, chest, hand and neck. After killing him, Nisha 'ransacked' the house to make it look like robbers had killed the victim.

Police said Nisha was in contact with Surender for the past 10 years and used to help him financially; she gave him money to set up a shop in Sonia Vihar.

"Over a period of time their relationship got strained, as Nisha got to know that Surender was using her and sending money to his family members in Saharanpur. On Thursday night Nisha found that R3.5 lakh was missing from the house and suspected Surender had taken the money. They had an argument over it," Sanjay Kumar Jain, DCP (northeast) said. Surender was also pressurising her to purchase a house in his name.

"After the argument, Nisha stabbed him brutally and even cut his neck. After that she ransacked the house. The next morning, she went to Rohini with her group to attend a ceremony, something that she could use as an alibi," the DCP added.

When the murder was discovered, Nisha told the police that she wasn't home when Surender was killed.

"To obtain initial clues, the scene of crime was thoroughly examined from various angles. The details of the victim were gathered and extensive enquiries were made regarding his personal and professional life. The eunuch was also examined as she was the last person who saw the victim alive," Jain further said.

There were glaring gaps and contradiction in Nisha's statement and she was subjected to sustained interrogation. After which she broke down and confessed to the crime.
