Police are looking to arrest a man on a charge of murder after allegedly killing his sister-in-law for being a witch and causing the death of his brother, police in India said.

Uttar Pradesh police said that the suspect who was identified as Uttam, killed his sister-in-law identified as Dhandevi, for killing her husband, Thakur, using witchcraft.

The suspect began accusing his sister-in-law of being a witch since his brother died mysteriously last month. On Thursday, Uttam found a mysterious object hanging from a street outside his home.

He confronted Dhandevi, accusing her again try to kill someone in his family with her spells just like she killed her husband.

Dhandevi denied the allegations. Uttam then pulled a large knife and stabbed his sister-in-law more than 15 times. He then cut off her head.

Uttam fled from the scene before police arrived. So far, he remains at large.
