Police said accused Babar murdered the transgender over an issue of loan payment worth Rs16,000 and later set the body on fire in a bid to remove the evidence from the crime scene.

“Both had an argument on the day of the crime. Accused Babar first tortured the eunuch then grabbed his neck until the very life was squeezed out of him,” the police said.
