Man beheads sister & takes severed head to police station

#1  Postby the_5th_ape » Jan 28, 2013 1:31 pm

In the first honour killing in Kolkata in decades, a 29-year-old youth dragged his sister out on the street and cut off her head with one stroke of the sword in Ayubnagar locality of Nadial, barely 13km from the city centre, on Friday.

Scores of residents looked on in horror as Mehtab Alam walked to a police station with the head in his left hand and the sword in his right, dripping blood all along the way.

At 11am, the duty officer at Nadial police station jumped to his feet in horror as he saw a young man walk in with the macabre exhibits. Before he could find the words to alert his colleagues, Mehtab put the sword and the head on his table, pulled up a chair and told him that he was ready to be arrested for murdering his sister, 22-year-old Nilofar Bibi. He told the duty officer to "seize the head as evidence", say sources.

Oh man! There is just so much wrong wrong wrong in this story :(

Poor woman fled an abusive relationship she was forced into as a child of 14, set up home with a man she appeared to have real feelings for and get's decapitated for it. Fucking barbarian!

Confusingly, the 29 year old murderer is described as a "youth" :scratch: , and is this really the first "honour killing" in this area in decades? Does the west really have more honour killings than parts of India?

Yes. It is the southern regions that mostly have the honor killings. This is depressing me.
Я пью за разоренный дом,
За злую жизнь мою,
За одиночество вдвоем,
И за тебя я пью, -
За ложь меня предавших губ,
За мертвый холод глаз,
За то, что мир жесток и груб,
За то, что Бог не спас.

There are times when I could reconsider my opposition to the death penalty. That "brother" is a seriously fucked up individual. I hope he will rot in prison for the rest of life.

I'm sure he will get at least 20 years in prison.

Hopefully not just a rap across the knuckles and being made to promise not to do it again.

But then they wouldn't be secular anymore. :scratch:

Was about to say...

If anything this would be a good argument against secularism. (that kids can be brainwashed to this extent without consequence)

No, it was an honor killing, they will be harsh so more don't happen in the area. He even admitted guilt.

20 years in an Indian prison ... not something I'd want to have to endure.

But then, I haven't beheaded any women, and find the idea shudderingly abhorrent. Consequently, 20 years in prison seems, if anything, to be somewhat lenient.

That is about the max he can get. I think 20 years is enough for him to learn from his mistake.
