A 30-year-old woman allegedly cut off her brother-in-law’s penis on Thursday over the latter’s repeated attempts to establish sexual relations with her in Madhya Pradesh’s Sidhi district in India.
The 22-year-old man committed suicide after the incident.
According to the reports, the accused, Vimlesh Koul, 30, walked into the police station to confess to her crime with her brother-in-law’s severed appendage in her hand.
Vimlesh lived with her in-laws, including brother-in-law Sanju Koul, in Narhai village while her husband worked as a labourer in Nashik, Maharashtra. The woman has alleged that Sanju used to repeatedly attempt to establish sexual relations with her.
On Thursday at around 4:30am, when Sanju tried to force himself on Vimlesh, she cut off his penis with a sickle, before heading to the police station at around 8:30am. An injured Sanju was later found hanging by his neck from a tree about 300m from the house.
“He allegedly committed suicide because of humiliation...Her parents-in-law didn’t come to know about the incident as the entire incident took place early in the morning and also because Sanju didn’t make any noise,” said town inspector, Churhat, Arti Chourate.
The police have registered a case of attempt to murder against Vimlesh.
“The accused woman is shaken...due to the entire episode. She is presently in the village. We have registered a case against her under section 307 and will soon take her in our custody,” said the town inspector.
This is the second incident in the last one week of a man’s private parts being chopped. On Wednesday, a 24-year-old man in Bhopal was allegedly sedated and castrated by unknown eunuchs, according to Indian local media reports.
