In a bizarre incident, a 20-year-old girl was killed by her brother, who went to a police station with the severed head after a suspected case of honour killing, police said on Sunday.

Objecting to her desire to marry a 50-year-old person, her brother Nanke chopped off her head yesterday, they said.

"Mahroon, who wanted to marry a 50-year-old person of Tajpur village in Rabipur area of the district, was beheaded by her brother Nanke," Superintendent of Police Vinay Kumar Yadav said.

On the complaint filed by the girl's father, police recovered the body and sent it for post mortem, Yadav said.

Nanke was arrested and a case registered against him under various sections of IPC, police said, adding, investigations were on.
