A woman in northern India Thursday reportedly cut off her husband’s penis for staying at his second wife’s residence.
Police said the victim and his first wife often had quarrels over his stay at the other woman's house.
“Their fight flared up and the woman, who repeatedly accused him of not spending time with her and ignoring her, cut his genitals using a knife,” said Anil Kaparwan, Area Police Chief.
“He was rushed to the hospital in a serious condition and is receiving medical treatment,” Kaparwan said.
The police added that the woman was detained following a complaint filed by the victim’s relatives.
The woman faces charges of causing grievous hurt and bodily harm and could face a maximum of 10 years in jail, police said.
