Exciting moment brother takes his 18-year-old sister’s severed head in a sack to a police station for trying to marry against her family’s wishes in India
Ashifa (18) of Barabanki in Uttar Pradesh was murdered by her brother Riaz (22).
A brother in India beheaded his teenage sister for trying to marry her against her family’s wishes, before packing her severed head in a sack and taking it to the police station.
18-year-old Ashifa, who lives in Uttar Pradesh’s Barabanki, ran away with her partner Chand Babu. They both belong to the same village.
However, his 22-year-old brother Riaz disliked the match and killed him in a gruesome ‘honour killing’ before carrying his severed head in a bag.
In the sensational footage, Riaz is seen walking towards Fatepur police station with Ashifa’s head. The public informed the police after seeing the blood-soaked bag.
The girl wanted to marry a man of her choice but her father Abdul Rashid and brother Riaz were against it.
The Economic Times said the brutal killings had sparked outrage across the country over the extent to which men would be restricted in ‘exerting control’ over the women in their families.

On May 29, Abdul filed a police complaint against Chand Babu for kidnapping a woman to marry him.
Ashifa’s partner was then arrested and jailed and ‘returned’ to the house where her brother and father lived.
Then on July 20, when Ashifa made it clear to her family that she was going to marry Chand Babu, Riyaz became violent.
Barabanki Additional Superintendent of Police Ashutosh Mishra said: ‘In a rage Riaz picked up a sharp weapon and went to the police station with his sister’s head in a sack before beheading her.’
After being seen carrying Ashifa’s remains, and what appeared to be weapons, Riaz was reported to the police. Officers later arrested him. He was sent to prison.

According to local media, an autopsy was conducted after Ashifa’s murder and evidence was collected from the scene.
A journalist from the Indian publication Swarajya described the killing as ‘another gruesome honor killing’ and tweeted the video, with the caption: ‘What this man is carrying is not a bag but his sister’s severed head.
‘Riaz was angry with her for running away with her lover (same religion, same caste). So Riaz beheaded him.’
