Removing apache2 completely, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Hey everyone,
I have installed apache2 and got it working. "It works!" message shows up in my browser on browsing http://localhost. Now i want to completely remove apache2. I uninstalled it from the package manager. I manually deleted all files from /usr/sbin too. I also run the command
sudo apt-get autoremove apache2
its output was
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package apache2 is not installed, so not removed
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 411 not upgraded.
But still I get "It works" message when i browse to http://localhost.
Please help. Thanks.
