A 35-year-old Indian woman beheaded a man Thursday, after allegedly trying to rape her, Lucknow police said.

The woman was cutting grass in her field when she said the man attacked her from behind,BBC News reported.

The woman told a BBC worker that she used her sickle to behead the man.

"He tried to rape me and I hit back with the grass-cutting weapon to save my honour," she said.

Ram Bharose, a village police officer, arrested the woman Thursday after getting news from various villagers that a woman covered in blood was walking around with a head, MSNBC reported.

Bharose did point out that the woman had bite marks and bruises on her body.

The woman said she did not regret killing the man.
