They were grabbed after a vehicle in which they were running away from police fell into a big pothole and veered into a bush. They had been running from the police who had asked them to stop at a checkpoint.
Concealed in a polythene bag
According to a report by Daily Guide, the human head was concealed in a bag and placed in the vehicle's back seat. However, when the car plunged into the bushes, the severed head and its contents became exposed.
Residents of Hobor who approached the crashed vehicle, with registration number GW 5532-21, saw a stream of blood leading to the severed head and immediately informed the police.
The report indicated one of the suspects tried to escape but was later arrested.
How the crime was committed
According to UTV's version of the report, one of the arrested drivers confessed to the residents who trooped to the crashed vehicle that they cut off the head of the victim, also a taxi driver, for a money ritual.
The suspect reportedly said they lured the now-deceased taxi driver by asking him to escort them to a funeral, and after the funeral, they told him to escort them to a construction site.
But while driving to the site, one used a rope to tie his neck from the back seat while the other held his hands and legs.
They later carried the man to a sand winning site and cut off his head.
The severed head has been deposited at the morgue, according to the BBC report.
