Jaipur: In a brutal dishonour killing, a man beheaded his 20-year-old daughter with a sword in Rajasthan`s Rajsamand district on Sunday, police said.

According to the police, the incident took place in Charbhuja area of the district, some 400 km from Jaipur.

"The man, Omkar Singh, was spotted roaming in the village with a severed head. The villagers brought him to the nearby police outpost with the head and a blood-stained sword," a police officer said.

Omkar Singh was allegedly outraged over his daughter`s alleged relations with several men.

"Omkar Singh told the police that his daughter Manju had relations with several men. He had asked her to mend her ways several times in the past. However, she did not pay heed. Out of pure rage, he chopped off her head with the sword," said the officer.

A police team found the girl`s body at his house. "We have arrested Singh," said the officer.
