Indian father beheads daughter over alleged affairs


RAJASTHAN (AF): An Indian father cut off his daughter’s head and paraded it around his village after becoming enraged over her relationships with men, police in the western state of Rajasthan said on Tuesday.

Oghad Singh, a marble mine worker, used a sword to behead his 22-year-old daughter Manju, who was married three years ago but had become estranged from her husband.

“The accused was disturbed with his daughter’s extra-marital affairs so he took this extreme step,” Rahul Katkey, superintendent of police in Rajsamand district, 330 kilometres (200 miles) from Jaipur, told AFP by telephone.

Singh walked out of his home on Sunday evening holding his daughter’s head in one hand and the bloodied sword in the other before a neighbour persuaded him to give himself up in the remote village of Doongar Ji Ka Gurha.

Police said that in his statement Singh said he had repeatedly pleaded with her to end her affairs and stay at home, and that he showed no remorse after killing her.

Katkey said Singh, who was immediately arrested, told officers that he had murdered his daughter in a fit of anger as she was “causing insult to him in society”.
