Indian father beheads daughter over extra-marital affairs

JAIPUR, India —

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 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 kilometers 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.
