A man, along with his wife and six others, was arrested on Sunday by the police for allegedly beheading his cousin over a land dispute in Jharkhand's Khunti.

After beheading the victim, the 20-year-old man's friends took a selfie with the severed head, according to the police.

The arrest was made following an FIR by the victim's father, Desai Munda, who claimed that his son, Kanu Munda, was alone at home on December 1 while he was out for work at a paddy field.
