An Indian teenager cuts off his sister's head with a "scythe" with the help of their mother and takes a selfie with her

An Indian teenager brutally and cold-bloodedly cut off his sister's head, after their mother helped him, and not only that, but it made it even more horrific that he took a selfie with his sister's head after he completely separated her from her body.

Police in the state of Maharashtra in western India arrested a teenager who beheaded his pregnant older sister who was making tea for her brother and mother when he attacked her with a machete and completely separated her head from her body, and then took a selfie with the victim's head, according to the BBC.

Police took the killer into remand after his lawyer said he was under 18, however, a police official stated that they would challenge this claim in court because they found a certificate proving he was an adult, and their mother was sent to police custody.

Local police officials indicate that the teenager and his mother confessed to the heinous crime, and that they killed the 19-year-old victim because she married a man without the consent of her family and ran away with him last June, and although they both belong to the same caste, her family did not approve of him because his family poorer than her family.

The young woman did not contact her family long after her marriage, but her mother visited her a week before the killing, and the police said that the mother knew that her daughter was pregnant, so she and her son who killed his sister in her husband's home visited her again.

Activists say hundreds of people are killed every year in India for falling in love or marrying against their family's wishes, and these killings are often called "honour killings", a reference to ancient notions of tradition and family honor still deeply ingrained in many parts of society.
