In a shocking incident, a 22-year-old woman allegedly chopped off genitals of her boyfriend after he refused to marry her and have physical relationship with her. The incident happened in Delhi’s Mangolpuri area and according to reports, the woman has been absconding along with her family members since the crime.
According to a Hindustan Times report, the victim was admitted to Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital where he was stated to be out of danger. Police revealed that the man has undergone a surgery and his life has been saved. “Though the man has undergone a surgery, doctors fear that the reattachment may not be successful,” said a police officer, according to the HT report.
After the incident, a case under section 326 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means) of Indian Penal Code was registered at the Mangolpuri police station against the absconding woman.
The man, a street vendor from Delhi, had just returned from work at around 11:30 pm when the woman’s sister-in-law, who lives three blocks away, telephoned him and asked him to come over. “The sister-in-law told him that his girlfriend wanted to meet and discuss some urgent issues,” said the Delhi police.
After reaching her girlfriend’s house, he had a fight with the woman on the issue of their wedding. The woman reportedly asked him to marry her which he refused saying his family members did not approve of their relationship.
The woman then pushed the victim inside the bathroom, undressed him, and forced him to have sex with her. When he refused, she allegedly brought a knife from the kitchen and threatened to kill him. However, the man remained reluctant. The woman then allegedly chopped off his genitals.
After hearing the man’s screams, some neighbours came out of their homes and called the police control room. By the time a police van arrived, the man had fallen unconscious.
