Kinnar Yadav, 40, flew into a rage when he saw his wife Vimla chatting with a neighbour and allegedly c**t off her h**d with an axe, before turning himself in to the police
A 40-year-old man was arrested in India after he turned up at the local police station carrying his wife’s h**d
A jealous husband allegedly c**t his wife’s h**d off when he caught her talking to their neighbour.
Kinnar Yadav, 40, had long suspected his wife Vimla, 35, of being unfaithful to him, according to reports.
Other residents of Baberu, located in Banda region in India’s Uttar Pradesh, reportedly told him she was having an affair with Ravikant Yadav who lives in a house near the couple.
On Friday morning Kinnar took a walk and returned home to find Vimla chatting with Rakivant.
Local police say he was looking to buy a buffalo and Vimla had been giving him tips.

Seeing the two of them together angered Kinnar so much that he grabbed an axe and attacked the other man, injuring him before he fled the scene.
He then turned his attention to his wife, k**lled her and seperated her h**d from her body. The couple’s two sons, Bhagat and Prahlad, weren’t home at the time.
Officers say Kinnar took the head and walked almost 3km to the closest police station to turn himself in.
He reportedly stood inside the station holding the h**d for more than 15 minutes before senior police officers were alerted to his alarming presence.

Banda’s assistant superintendent of police Mahendra P Chauhan told local media: “The incident happened in Baberu town.
“Kinnar reached the police station around 8:30 am with the severed h**d.
“He also attacked the neighbour, Ravikant Yadav, who is under treatment at a hospital. His condition is stable.”

The suspect was arrested under Section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
A case was registered at Baberu police station under relevant IPC sections and Kinnar will appear in a local court soon, a police officer said.
