A 13-year-old girl in India was beheaded with farm hook ‘for refusing to have sex with a neighbour’, police say.
The teenager was brutally attacked with a piece of farm equipment after refusing the sexual advances of the older man, it was said.
Police were said to have dismissed suggestions he was suffering from mental health problems when he slaughtered the youngster.
The girl was studying at a nearby school and had reportedly told her mum about the man’s continuous sexual advances, which she repeatedly turned down.
Her parents who were labourers, are thought to be a lower caste than the accused, which local reports suggest caused his violet reaction.
