In a bone-chilling incident, a man in Uttar Pradesh's Barabanki beheaded his wife and walked on the streets with her severed head in one hand along with a sickle in another. The accused allegedly cut off his wife's head with the sickle over suspicions that she was having an affair, police said on Saturday.
