Pune:  In a shocking and gruesome incident here on Friday, a man hacked his wife to death and set out on the roads with her severed head in his hand, police said. He was been arrested.

Ramu Chavan, a resident of Karaj area, had allegedly murdered his wife a few minutes before, suspecting her of infidelity.

After severing her head, limbs and torso, he was walking on the footpath with blood dripping from the head he carried in one hand and an axe in the other when shocked traffic cops accosted him.

Chavan was gently guided to the local police station and later arrested even as a team reached the murder site and recovered the victim’s other body parts.

Chavan’s mental condition is not clear.

Further investigations are underway to determine the exact motives behind the gruesome killing and Chavan’s subsequent behaviour.

The use of information technology by law enforcement agencies can significantly cut the number of police personnel killed or injured in the line of duty, reducing violence as much as 50 per cent, says new research.

People haven’t previously known much about the impact of IT on police safety, because relatively few departments used it until recently and there hasn’t been much research on the topic.

“The use of IT by police increases the occupational safety of police officers in the field and reduces deaths and assaults against police officers,” said Paul A. Pavlou, dean of the CT Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston.

Pavlou and Min-Seok Pang of Temple University used data from the FBI, the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics and the US Census to build a dataset correlating IT use and reported violence against law enforcement from 4,325 US police departments over a six-year period.

The analysis determined extensive use of IT by the police could cut violence against law enforcement between 42 per cent and 50 per cent — amounting to between six and seven fewer assaults or deaths for an average-sized police department.

For large urban departments serving more than 1 million people, relying on information technology could mean up to 199 fewer assaults or deaths, said the study published in the journal Decision Support Systems.

The dataset focused on the use of information technology in three areas: Crime intelligence, crime prediction and crime investigation.
