Emmerdale's Meena Jutla has murdered Leanna Cavanagh in brutal scenes on Thursday 8 July's episode of the hit ITV soap opera, leaving viewers shocked.
After Leanna and Meena shared a heated exchange, the nurse grabbed her by the shirt and hauled her off a bridge to fall to her death.
Fans immediately flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts and opinions on the terrifying events as one person wrote: "What a psychopath #meana is truly evil. No empathy at all. #Emmerdale".
"Chillingly Brilliant eps of #Emmerdale this week [shocked face emoji] Underrated, Powerful Raw performances from certain cast… Especially Paige Sandhu, who really embodied the Psychopathic tendencies as Meena She’s becoming one of the Greatest & Darkest villains to have walked the Dales!!!," another said.
While a third added: "I'm so sad. Leanna has been a brilliant character and Mimi a fantastic actress [sad emoji]. I know that Liam's reaction is going to be heartbreaking and it's going to impact the whole village #Emmerdale".
Meena, who is played by Paige Sandhu, has been seen manipulating various people in the village as she nearly killed Andrea Tate's dog and stole the Emmerdale Price collection money to frame her boyfriend David Metcalfe's son Jacob Gallagher in an attempt to get David all to herself.
In the last week alone tensions have been rising as Meena tried to get Jacob to go on an adventure with his on-off girlfriend Leanna, which didn't work. After initially accepting Leanna's invitation, he decided against it, leaving the blonde beauty upset drinking Champagne by herself.
She later headed back to her home to look at the presents she received for her 18th birthday, which were in an old rucksack given to her by Meena's sister Dr Manpreet Sharma.
However, both Leanna and Manpreet were unaware that the same rucksack held the stolen Emmerdale Pride collection money as well as evidence related to the death of an old friend.
Realising what happened, Meena rushed to Leanna's house and broke in to take the evidence off her.
“How did you get in here?” Leanna asked, to which Meena responded: "You left the door on the latch." Confused, Leanna questioned: “Seriously, why are you here, Meena?”

“It’s all fine, I’ll be out of your hair in just a sec, but first I think you have something of mine,” Meena replied, before asking: “Did you take anything else out of the bag?”
Things got heated as Leanna demanded for the box to be taken out of the bag and given to her, but before Leanna could do as ordered the money dripped and she realised Meena was the guilty one.
“Oh my gosh, it wasn’t Jacob, it was you, that’s why you’re here!” Leanna said as Meena shouted: “Now let’s start again. The bag and everything inside it. I want it back. Right now!”
In later scenes, Leanna ran outside to the graveyard where the pair struggled with each other on a bridge before Meena threw her off the edge.
In an evil moment, she tried to force herself to cry before giving up and saying: "I got nothing… Oh dear! Should I call for an ambulance? I'm not sure they'd get here in time…"
She later went down to the riverbank, where she took one of Leanna's rings before walking off, leaving her for dead.
