Puri: A man first attacked his wife and then beheaded her suspecting infidelity at Raiberuan village under Astaranga police limits here. The matter came to light when the accused walked into Astaranga police station with the head of his deceased wife on late Sunday.

The accused, Ganesh Behera, had married Arnapurna who hails from Kakatpur’s Olangar village. Ganesh works for a private firm in Chennai. He was back home since a few days and the couple had frequent arguments suspecting Arnapurna’s fidelity.

Last night during one such heated argument, Ganesh lost his cool and killed his wife in cold blood. Later using a sharp weapon he beheaded his wife and carrying her head he reached Astaranga Police station.

The police have taken Ganesh into custody and have also recovered rest of the victim's body for post-mortem. Further probe into the matter is underway.
