Skeptic News: 2 killed for control over eunuch sect

A 36-year-old man has been arrested for killing his uncle, who headed a group of hijras that had property worth crores of rupees in Delhi, Rajasthan and Punjab. An aide of the dera head was also murdered.

Ranjita alias Gita, 50, headed the prosperous dera, based at Majnu Ka Tila. The second victim has been identified as Sharmila, Ranjita’s confidant. Ranjita had territorial control over eunuchs in Civil Lines, Timarpur, Chandrawal, Ahata Kedara and surroundings areas as well as in Rajsthan’s Sri Ganganagar and Punjab’s Hoshiarpur districts. Ranjita used his nephew Laxman as muscle to threaten other occupants of the dera (a Punjabi and Seraiki language word meaning camp or settlement) so that nobody could challenge his supremacy.

However over time his influence waned and Laxman along with co-conspirators Satish and Paras plotted to murder him and take control of the Dera.  They carried out their plan and poured petrol over the two bodies and burned them before dumping them in a remote area to avoid identification. The murders came to light after Satish and Paras were caught on Sunday at Saket over the murder of an autorickshaw driver in Mehrauli.
