THIS is the chilling moment a monster dad calmly carried his daughter’s severed head along streets after beheading her in a so-called “honour killing”.
Sarvesh Kumar admitted on video to decapitating the 17-year-old with a sharp tool, as he was very angry about her dating a man he didn’t approve of, say reports.

He was casually walking barefoot with the head of his daughter, Neelam.
The dad was allegedly on his way to a police station after he decapitated his daughter as part of an honour killing.
A villager alerted cops, and they swooped on the man who was even filmed dropping the teen’s head on the ground in front of shocked locals.
Two officers filmed him on their phones, as they asked him for his name, where he was from and whose head it was.
One man could be seen in the horrific video patting Kumar down and checking under his clothing to see if he was carrying anything else.
He appeared unfazed as he casually spoke to one of the men – even answering a call on his mobile phone – and said that the body of his daughter was at his home.
In the shocking video, Kumar confessed to brutally chopping his daughter’s head off with a sharp tool.
In front of the crowd, he claimed to be unhappy with her relationship with a neighbouring man.

Kumar told cops: “I did it. There was no one else. I closed the latch and did it. The body is in the room.”
The father was reportedly upset over Neelam’s – the oldest of four children – relationship with a man, and killed her at the family home.
He said that he would have killed her lover too had he been able to track him down – and appeared to show no remorse for his evil actions.
NDTV reporter Alok Pandey visibly struggled to report on the shocking video.
DAD ‘UNHAPPY’ WITH DAUGHTER
He told viewers this week that Kumar had “cut off the head as he was unhappy with his daughter trying to live her own life.
“She had struck up a friendship with a man from the village and the dad said he did not like it and he was against it, but his daughter would not listen.”
“It’s terrible I don’t know what to say”, the reporter said.
Pandey said the video was ‘ghastly’ to watch as the dad was holding her head by her hair, and walking “calmly” on the road before cops intercepted and arrested him.
“Words fail me. One hopes this man gets the strictest possible punishment,” Pandey added.
A policeman has also been suspended in relation to the crime as he was holding the girl’s head in an “ungainly manner”, NDTV said.
Kumar’s wife has also been arrested.
Police found the body of his daughter at the family home and have sent it for a post-mortem examination.

Hundreds of people – mostly women – have died in so-called “honour killings” in India since 2014, according to government data.
These slaying are often carried out by family members who believe the relationship has brought “shame” on their community.
But activists say the crime is vastly under-reported, and that many killings are covered up to look like suicide.
