Mumbai, May 27 (PTI) Police have apprehended a eunuch, a 16-year-old boy and four others for allegedly killing a man in Shivaji Nagar area of eastern Mumbai on Thursday, an official said.

The victim, identified as Suhail Ahmed Shah (35), was allegedly thrashed and stabbed to death in the morning in Bainganwadi locality, and the accused were nabbed within hours of the crime, he said.
