New Delhi, India (The Weekly Vice) - Oghad Singh, of Dengar Ka Guda, India is under investigation after he allegedly chopped off his daughter's head and then showed it off to neighbors.
According to police, officers were shocked Tuesday when a man showed up at a police outpost holding his daughter's severed head and the sword he used to remove it.
Investigators say the man had paraded the head through town while traveling to the police outpost.
The victim, 20-year-old Manju Kunwar, was living with her parents after divorcing her husband two years prior. She was beheaded by her father after it was discovered she had recently eloped with a new man.
The father forced his daughter to return home on Sunday, beheaded her the next day and then turned himself in on Tuesday.
Kunwar's mother was working in the fields at the time of the murder and was too distressed to comment.
Kunwar's head and body were cremated in accordance with Hindu tradition. No charges have been formally announced.
Recently, the Thomas Reuters Foundation poll cited India as the worst place to be a woman among the world's top 19 economies.
