Meena Jutla first appeared in Emmerdale last year. But who is she, how many people has she killed and who plays her?
Who is Meena Jutla in Emmerdale?
Meena was previously married to a man called Jeremy before her life in Emmerdale.
She first appeared in the ITV soap in September 2020.
Emmerdale: Why did Meena fall out with Manpreet?
When Meena first arrived, Manpreet was not happy to see her sister.
It was revealed that Manpreet’s first husband Dennis cheated on her with Meena, leaving the sister’s relationship in tatters.
When Meena arrived, she desperately tried to fix her relationship with her sister. After a few months, Manpreet felt she was able to trust her again.
Meena and David’s relationship
A few months after arriving in the village, Meena quickly developed a crush on David.
They got off to a rocky start when he ended up standing her up on their lunch date, leaving her furious.
He later explained to her how he had been too trusting with his past girlfriend Maya, who groomed and sexually abused his son Jacob.
Meena told David he could trust her, however he is unaware she is a serial killer.
He began to grow closer to Victoria Sugden while dating Meena and a couple of times the two shared a kiss.
David wouldn’t leave Meena, however last month he realised he couldn’t hide his feelings anymore and told Vic he loved her and was going to leave Meena.
Meena set out to kill Vic during the survival challenge but it didn’t go to plan and Vic survived.
David ended up leaving Meena for Vic. Now it seems she has her sights set on Billy Fletcher.
How many people has Meena killed?
Before her life in Emmerdale, Meena murdered her best friend Nadine Butler.
Leanna Cavanagh discovered the news article about Nadine’s suspicious death in Meena’s belongings.
Meena explained Nadine took her own life, but the article revealed her death was treated as suspicious.
When Leanna quizzed Meena on her friend’s death, she admitted she killed Nadine.
Despite Leanna telling Meena she would keep her killer secret, Meena refused to take any chances and killed the teenager, making it look like an accident.
On the survival challenge Meena attempted to kill Victoria by drowning her while she was unconscious but was unsuccessful.
Her attempted murder was witnessed by Andrea Tate. Not wanting anyone to know what she did, Meena killed Andrea by bashing her head on a wooden step and leaving her in the middle of a burning maze.
She then went on to try and kill Priya in her sleep after discovering she was in the maze at the time she was chasing down and killing Andrea.
However she was interrupted by a nurse and Meena later found out Priya didn’t see anything, so she decided to leave her be.
Just last week, Meena killed Ben Tucker after he found bodycam footage of Meena trying to drown Vic.
She hit him over the head with a kayak oar and his body was found by Dawn Taylor.
Who will Meena kill next?
Over the last couple of weeks, Meena has set her sights on Billy. However she became irritated when his ex-girlfriend Dawn joined them when they were out for a drink.
She tried to drive them apart, but if Dawn continues to get in her way, could she be next on Meena’s list?
Fans seem to think so.
