A couple decapitate themselves at the same time in ritualistic sacrifice in India
According to reports, A husband and wife have reportedly killed themselves by decapitation so they could offer their heads as a sacrifice in India.
Hemubhai Makwana and Hansaben, both 38 years old, allegedly severed their heads with a “guillotine-like mechanism” into a “fire altar” for a religious sacrifice yesterday in Vinchhiya. Gujarat, India.
Vinchhiya Police sub-inspector Indrajeetsinh Jadeja said the ‘ritual’ was carried out between Saturday night and Sunday afternoon April 16, and the couple left a note for their two children, parents, and relatives who live nearby.
Mr. Jadeja stated that the note encouraged their relatives to care for their parents and children.
The bodies have been sent for a post-mortem examination, and a case of accidental death has been registered.
The couple’s family members said the pair had been offering prayers in their home every day since last year.
