After a horrific honour killing, a father of four in Uttar Pradesh was seen walking in the streets carrying his daughter’s severed head.

According to NDTV, Sarvesh Kumar had beheaded his 17-year-old because he disapproved of her boyfriend. He said he would have killed her lover too if he could find him

He admitted to decapitating her with a sharp object and claimed to be carrying her head to the police station.

'I did it. There was no one else. I closed the latch and did it. The body is in the room', he said.

Police found the body of his daughter at the family home and have sent it for a post-mortem examination.

Kumar and his wife have both been arrested and taken into custody.

Uttar Pradesh recorded the highest number of crimes against women in 2019, according to National Crime Record bureau data.
