The personnel at Nampally police station were shocked to see two youths - Mohammed Irfan and Mohammed Ghouse - entering the building with one of them holding a severed head in one hand and a sickle in the other. The two then confessed and surrendered.
According to police, the severed head is that of autorickshaw driver Saddam, 28. He was beheaded by the duo with a sickle used to cut coconuts.
Preliminary investigations revealed that Irfan and Ghouse murdered Saddam to avenge the death of a woman, who they considered their sister. The woman, who was a widow, was taken to Hyderabad by Saddam some years ago. She was later found dead under suspicious circumstances in 2017 and the duo had blamed him for her death.
