NY Post – Horrifying images show the moment an Indian man who had decapitated his wife paraded her head, waved to stunned onlookers and sang his country’s national anthem, according to a report.
Akhilesh Rawat, 30, and his wife of more than two years, Rajani, began an argument that turned violent Saturday – and he allegedly attacked her with a sharp-edged weapon, beheading her, the Hindustan Times reported.
Rawat walked for just under a mile in Uttar Pradesh, northern India, holding his 26-year-old wife’s severed head aloft before he was arrested near the Jahangirabad police station, according to the news outlet.
“We have recovered the weapon from the accused’s home,” police Superintendent Arvind Chaturvedi said.
Rawat faces a murder charge and a case of dowry death was filed against him on the complaint of the victim’s father. “A case has been registered against the accused. We are interrogating him to know as to how and why he killed his wife,” the police superintendent said.
Wow, it’s called “getting head”, not “taking head”, bro. This is obviously a sad story, but you have to hand it to Akhilesh, this is how you successfully move forward with an insanity plea. None of this “oh, I took the life insurance money and bought a BMW two days after my wife’s body was found, and now that I’ve been arrested for murdering her, I’d like to plead not guilty by reason of insanity” bullshit.
Let this be a lesson to people who are thinking about putting antifreeze in their spouse’s Gatorade. Not gonna fly anymore. I mean, yeah, if the goal is to kill them, that part’s still going to work, but you’re not going to get away with it. You want to kill someone and have a legit shot at pleading insanity and spending your life in a mental health facility and not being someone’s butt bitch in prison? You follow in the bloody footsteps of our boy, Akhilesh here. You hack off the head and then walk around town singing the national anthem. Although, I think it would have been a little more apropos for Akhilesh to sing Foreigner’s “Head Games.” I’m not trying to be vile here, but if you’re going to horrify onlookers (for life?) by walking around with the head, you at least want a couple of them to smirk and be like “ohhh, I get it, I see what you did there. Well played.”
Fortunately, the cops showed up and I guess from the picture it looks like they had to wrestle the head out of his hands. It appears like he had a pretty solid grip on it, almost like he was doing his impression of Perseus and Medusa. Anyway, we may never know where he was headed (did that on purpose), maybe he was on his way to a local bowling alley to see if he could use her noggin to pick up the dreaded 7 and 10 split.
