Teenager arrested for beheading sister as mother allegedly held victim's legs

ニューデリー A teenager has been arrested in western India for beheading his 19-year-old sister while his mother allegedly held the young woman’s legs, 警察によると.

被害者, who got married against her parentswishes, was two months pregnant, police told CNN Tuesday, citing her husband.
The incident happened on Sunday in Vaijapur, Maharashtra, and neither the victim nor accused have been publicly named by police.
    “女の子 (19) went against her parentswishes and got married five months ago. They had a court marriage and since then she had not been in contact with her family and was living with her husband,” Kailash Prajapati, a senior police official in Vaijapur, Maharashtra, CNNに語った.
      The victim’s mother and brother came to her home on Sunday, and the victim invited them inside for tea, Prajapati said.
        That is when the brother took a scythe and struck her four times and beheaded her. They then picked up the head and kept it outside the house in the yard and left the body inside,” Prajapati said.
        The mother was holding her legs during the incident and was equally complicit,” 彼が追加した.
          The woman’s husband, who was at home because he was feeling too unwell to work, was asleep in the house at the time of the incident, and woke up when he heard the noise, 警察は言った.
          The accused attacked him as well but he was able to escape,” Prajapati said.
          Police said the pair later visited a police station and confessed to the killing. Police launched an investigation after they went to the house and discovered the body and head.
          The boy is a minor according to his birth certificate and he has been sent to a juvenile home and the mother is in custody.
          The teenager and his mother are yet to be officially charged, but Prajapati said the police report listed murder as the charge for both, pending an investigation.
          Police are waiting for a postmortem to confirm if the victim was pregnant.
          The facts in the allegation fit the pattern of an honor killing.
            So-called honor killing is most often the murder of a woman or girl by male family members who justify their actions by claiming that the victim has brought dishonor upon the family.
