In yet another horrendous incident, a man beheaded his 17-year-old daughter and reached the police station with her severed head on Wednesday, 3 March, night in Uttar Pradesh’s Hardoi district. The man was allegedly upset over his daughter's alleged affair with a youth whom he disliked.

Hardoi Superintendent of Police, Anurag Vats, told reporters that the accused, Sarvesh Kumar of Pandeytara village under Majhila police station, has been arrested.

"Sarvesh is a vegetable vendor. A few days ago, he spotted his daughter in a compromising position with a youth. He made up his mind to teach his daughter a lesson. Sarvesh's wife has also testified this in her statement to the police," the SP said.

According to police, Sarvesh reached home, late on Wednesday afternoon, and beheaded his daughter with a chopper.

Panic gripped the area when Sarvesh walked down to Majhila police station, about 2 km away from his village, holding the girl’s severed head in his hand.

Police said the girl, a student of class 12, was the eldest among four children – three girls and a boy.

A video of a police constable holding the head of the girl went viral on social media, following which IG Lucknow range, Laxmi Singh took cognisance of the matter and suspended the constable deployed at Mahila police station.

She said that responsibility of the police is to maintain law and order and must carry themselves in a disciplined manner.

"The constable was holding the beheaded girl's head and taking a stroll in the police station," she said.
