Lucknow: In a shocking incident that came to light in Uttar Pradesh, two brothers beheaded their sister in Bamani Chowki village only because she was having an affair with a cousin.
The brothers were so enraged that they even carried the severed, bleeding head of their 17-year-old sister around the village.
The brothers - Gul Hasan (25) and Nanhey (20) – had spotted Phool Jahan outside their cousin's house in the afternoon on Monday.
The girl had, in fact, stayed at the cousin's place overnight, as per reports.
The brothers got enraged because they had earlier rejected their sister's request to marry her cousin and even warned her to stay away from him.
On noticing their sister outside the cousin's home, the brothers dragged her away and beheaded her.
They then marched around the village carrying the severed head, and bragged, "Dekho, hamne apni behen ko maar dala aur pyar karney ki yehi sazaa hoti hai (See, we have killed our sister and this is the punishment for having a love affair).”
While police have managed to arrest one of the brothers, the other is on the run with the sister's head.
Bamani Chowki village falls under the jurisdiction of Paraur police station in Shahjhanapur district.
