Man beheads sister, walks to the police station with her head in Kolkata India

Kolkata: In what seems like a clear case of honour killing, a man beheaded his younger sister in full public glare. The incident took place on Friday. 29-year old Mehtab Alam, a tailor by profession, allegedly beheaded Nilofer with a stroke of a sword.

Reports indicate he then walked to the Nadial police station in South 24 Parganas district with his sister's head and the sword. The police said Mehtab asked to be charged and that he confessed to killing his sister for an extra marital relationship.

"Hussain told our stunned colleagues that he killed his sister because she was having an extra-marital affair," a police officer said. He said her body was dumped on a road in Ayubnagar.

According to him, the young woman was in a relationship with a man. She later married another man but recently eloped with her paramour. "Hussain said he killed her to protect the honour of his family," police said. "He wanted to kill her paramour also."

Alam has been remanded to judicial custody till December 22. He will make a confessional statement before a magistrate under section 164 of Criminal Procedure Code of India or CrPC on Monday.

  • A guy walks to the police station with the head of his sister hanging by her hair. The perp animal sits down, sword in hand, and chats for a minute with the police who don't appear too concerned, or even grab the animal. Finally, the door to the police station opens, the police come out, walks past the animal holding the head of his sister, because the main concern is the guy with the iphone!
    "Run along, nothing to see here."
    One get the impression that the perp would have been more More..

      I keep trying to tell you, it's a part of their culture! This is not really that strange or unheard of to them. Sure it is to us, but we don't live in shithole India. They probably beat the fuck out of that guy when they took him in. Or gave him a hero's welcome. Fucked!

Hussain is a muslim name and honour killings are an islamic thing. Also, who other than a snackbar is barbaric enough to kill their own sister for having extra martial relations.... but then think it's alright to go fuck a goat.

    • @manti2006 Hey, I'm perfectly fine with that... as long as they behead the men who do the same thing. Same with the Muslims. I have a hunch they would be interpreting their laws and religions a little different if justice applied to men and women equally.

  • Worthless. Remove him from the planet as quickly as possible. If his family is in agreement remove them also. A quick death is too merciful for these walking pieces of dog shit. This thing isn't human. The death penalty is a service to humanity, like trash collection, not a deterrent to stop crimes. This is a dishonor killing, a way to show the world that you are worthless and should die along with your worthless culture that supports such actions.

    SEveral years ago they found the body of a young girl,, about five years old, stuff in some rocks by the lake in Toronto. Very good descpription of two people putting it in there. Two people, both Indians right off the boat, the girls' guardians, man and women arrested and charge with first degree murder.

  • We have a high East Indian population here in Vancouver where honor killings are very common. Often people from India are contracted to come to N.America to assasinate someone who has (by their standard) shamed the family. A twenty something girl was killed recently because her boyfriend was white and she was arranged to be married to an Indian. She choose her own free will and ended up with her throat slip in a ditch. The worst part was the murder was commited by the hand of her own uncle who c More..

      In this case the ENTIRE family should be deported, no case, no lawyers...*tweeeeeet* everyone out of the pool, NOW!

      This is because if they don't abide by the laws of their new home they need to be sent on back ;)

      That's reasonable

      To me it's all about sovereignty and preserving what freedom and democracy truly mean. Canada let's it's immigrant population carry on as it would in their own country of orgin. To the contrary, in America, you are American in Canada you are whatever you want to be. There is some recourse because non-citizenized felons are deported.
