According to the police, the accused, Pradeep Kumar, who lives at Srinagar colony in Hyderabad, and the victim, Manikranti, got married in 2015.

The CCTV footage showed that the accused was running with a sickle in one hand, and the severed head in another hand.
Traffic police, who saw the suspect near a bridge with bloodstains on his shirt informed the police.
The man was then arrested and police are searching for the severed head.
Manikranti had filed a case of domestic violence against Pradeep some time ago and he was arrested before their separation. Pradeep, who was recently released on bail, resorted to the brutal killing to seek revenge, the police said.
But it was not the first time such incident would happen in the area, local reports say. In July, two men in Telangana murdered a man by beheading him, and then took the severed head to the police station and surrendered.
