A brutal husband has been accused of heinously chopping off his wife's arms and legs with a sickle while she slept at their home in Andhra Pradesh, India on Wednesday, Sept. 15.

The horrifying incident reportedly happened in Chakrayapeta Mandal of YSR Kadapa district in Andhra Pradesh state, India.

Naganayak, 63, and his wife Islawat Eshwaramma, 48, have reportedly frequently engaged in heated arguments and fights over the past three years due to recurring marital issues.

Their neighbors related that the couple seemingly also had a shouting match on the night of the alleged murder, which coincided with the Vinayaka Chaviti festival that happened on Friday, Sept. 10. The incessant bickering of the two had even previously spurred the couple's children to take Eshwaramma to live with them, according to The Hans India.

A recent intervention, however, saw Eshwaramma convinced to return to her husband. Unfortunately, their arrangement took an unfortunate turn for the worst on Wednesday night, Sept. 15, while Eshwaramma fast asleep. In a fit of rage, Naganayak allegedly took a sickle and proceeded to horrifically lop off his wife's arms and legs before fleeing the spot.

Neighbors quickly rushed to the scene after hearing the victim's screams and took her to a hospital in Kadapa for immediate treatment. The police have started an investigation into the violent incident and are on the lookout for Naganayak.

In a similar but unrelated incident, an Indian man has been accused of brutally chopping off his wife's nose following a heated argument over his drinking habit and unemployment on Tuesday, Sept. 14, Latin Times reported.

The violent confrontation transpired in Barkheda Bondar village under the Khajuri Sadak Police Station in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India.

Pritam Chaure, 30, who worked as a laborer, was left triggered and irate after his wife Manisha, 32, repeatedly nagged him about finding work and berated him to stop drinking alcohol. Following a heated argument, Chaure, in a fit of rage, allegedly grabbed a knife and horrifically mangled his wife's face, lopping off her nose in the process. The husband fled their home immediately after the vicious confrontation.

Manisha, who sustained serious injuries, was rushed to the hospital by her sister for immediate treatment.

A case has been registered under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and a manhunt for the accused is underway, Khajuri Sadak Police Station in-charge Sandhya Mishra said.
