The alleged killer of Monika Ghurde, a 39-year-old perfume specialist who was found murdered at her three-bedroom flat in Goa's Sangolda village, boiled and ate a couple of eggs in her kitchen and clicked a selfie outside an apparel shop after the gruesome crime, according to reports.

Ghurde was found with her hands tied to her bed. Ghurde's alleged murderer Rajkumar Singh reportedly told the police that he intended to film her in the nude to blackmail her, the Times of India reported. The 21-year-old former watchman at Sapana Raj Valley allegedly smothered her, and thinking she was unconscious, went into her kitchen, boiled two eggs and ate them.

Later when he went to check on her and realised she is dead, he fled the spot. He had entered the flat after jumping a backyard fence, and threatened her with a knife. He was nabbed from Bengaluru after police reviewed CCTV footage of him withdrawing money from an ATM in Porvorim using Ghurde's ATM card, the report said.

A postmortem report on Saturday revealed that Ghurde died due to smothering.

The Goa police tracked Singh's cellphone and found that he had withdrawn Rs 50,000 using Ghurde's debit card, the Deccan Chronicle reported. He posted a selfie on Facebook before an apparel shop that led the Bengaluru police to him, according to the report. The Bengaluru police, along with a team from Goa, combed the lodges nearby to finally reach Singh.

Singh told the police that he had planned the crime well in advance.
