Mumbai: Annabibi Shaikh’s desire to end an alleged romantic relationship as she was already married, led to her murder on Wednesday night at Andheri bridge, said the police.

A spurned Kismat stabbed Annabibi 15 to 20 times in her chest and stomach, leading to her death.
Police sources said that Annabibi, who hailed from Jharkhand, was employed for long as a waitress with “Gold Mini Bar” at Andheri west. It was there that she met Kismat and started a relationship with him despite being married. When the affair turned serious however, Annabibi wanted out from it and decided to end the relationship. Soon after, an incensed Kismat hatched a plan to kill her.
