This is the horrific moment a man walks into a police station and pulls his wife's severed head from a black plastic bag.
35-year-old Satish, entered the police station in southern India, brandishing a machete and proclaiming that he had murdered his wife, Roopa.
A police officer recorded the moment on his smartphone, as Satish lay his bag on the floor and pulled his wife's severed head out and held it up with one hand.
'This is my wife, sir. I gave her all the love I could,' he tells shocked police officers before one shouts: 'Put it back inside!'
Satish then places the head back in the bag, at the police station in the town of Ajjampura, in the Chikkamagaluru district of southern India's Karnataka state.
He then told officers that his wife had been cheating on him and that he had lost his temper after seeing them together.
He continues to slam his wife's character, complaining that she had chosen his rival, Sunil over him, despite the man apparently having a criminal record and being employed as a manual worker.
Satish told cops that Roopa had even taken out a loan for 300,000 INR (3,170 GBP) ($4,131) and given the money to her lover.
The officers in attendance had to calm Satish down so they could take his statement in order to begin proceedings for launching a formal murder investigation.
Inspector Ramachandra Nayak said Satish had been remanded in police custody after showing officers where he had left the rest of his wife's body.
Supt Annamalai said: 'Generally, in the Ajjampura area, whoever commits murder surrenders to the police but for someone to walk in and place a head on the sub-inspector's table was something new for us.'
