An Indian villager has axed to death four women and five young girls while apparently mentally disturbed after his wife left him, police say.
Pandu Nagesia, 35, killed nine of his neighbours during his rampage through Behratoli village in the central state of Chhattisgarh on Thursday, district police chief Govardhan Singh Darroh said by telephone.
The victims were five girls aged between two and nine, a 25-year-old and three women over 60, he said.
'A total of nine females were axed to death,' Darroh said.
'The accused Nagesia first attacked a 25-year-old woman and her two-year-old child and axed them to death, subsequently killing his neighbours one after another,' the police chief said.
'The accused seems to be mentally disturbed after his wife deserted him,' he said, after Nagesia was taken into custody and the axe recovered from the village, 625 kilometres north of the state capital, Raipur.
A witness said the incident happened in the early afternoon when some women and children had assembled at a house after their male relatives had gone to work in a nearby mine, the Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency reported.

"I just wish ol' Pandu had'a tried that tatti in our village."
I hope that axe didn’t have a pistol grip.
Too bad they don’t have background checks for people wanting to buy an axe.
I raised my baby girls to protect themselves. I like seeing kids that are competent to take care of problems.
I wonder if it was a high capacity assault ax.
LOL! I don’t know, it could have been a fully automatic assault ax.
Well apparently the ax isn’t to blame - must ban all women...or limit them to 10 rds or less...then this wouldn’t have happened...I know this doesn’t make sense - neither does progressive mindsets!
I hope that axe didnt have a pistol grip.
Never to worry. It was only a semi-auto axe.
Too bad he didn’t take advantage of the last ax buy-back.
High Capacity Axe apparently.
What, you mean he didn’t use a “military-style assault rifle”?
Difficult to believe.
Don’t tell that to anyone at the New York Times or the Washington Post - you’ll get nothing but doubting stares and replies of, “Impossible!”
Harry Callahan: I know what you’re thinking. ‘Did he swing six times or only five’? Well to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, i kind of lost track myself. But being that this is a .44 Magnum Axe, the most powerful axe in the world, and would cut your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well do ya, punk?
OMG!! IT WAS ALL BLACK AND HAD SCARY STUFF ATTACHED TO IT!! I think it was one of those SUV K 16 automatic axes.
Interesting. What was he axing them about? It's usually women who axe, and axe, and axe men to death!
using liberal logic:
ban all axes, ban all hands so that this this never happens again
Cutting remark, that!
He probably had to stop at nine to sharpen the edge.
Wonder if they have a law requiring you to sharpen a blade after 9 whacks to give others a chance to escape or attack.
India must immediately move to develop legislation banning assault rifles . . . , oh, wait. An Axe? Never mind.
That’s some real cutting humor there!
He went down to the Audobon Zoo, and they all axe for you.
