Husband and Wife Worship Hindu “God” Every Day for a Year, Then Decapitate Themselves

A husband and wife from India simultaneously decapitated themselves over the weekend using an improvised guillotine rigged in such a way that their severed heads rolled directly into a fire altar as a form of human sacrifice, officials said.

Farmer Hemubhai Makwana, 38, and his wife, Hansaben Makwana, 35, committed the sickening act sometime between Saturday and Sunday in the village of Vinchiya, located in the Rajkot district of the western state of Gujarat, local police said.

“The couple first prepared a fire altar before putting their heads under a guillotine-like mechanism held by a rope. As soon as they released the rope, an iron blade fell on them, severing their heads, which rolled into the fire,” said Vinchiya police sub-inspector Indrajitsinh Jadeja, according to Hindustan Times. . .

Jadeja said investigators were taking statements from relatives and trying to determine whether the twin beheadings were part of a black magic ritual.

The couple had been worshiping the god Shiva — one of the main deities of Hinduism — at an improvised temple they had set up on their property every day for the past year. (Read more from “Husband and Wife Worship Hindu “God” Every Day for a Year, Then Decapitate Themselves” HERE)
