A 26 year-old man's genitals were chopped off by a woman and three of the latter's neighbors for asking her to continue an extra-marital affair with him, Bihar police said. The incident took place in Gopalganj district, in the Indian state of Bihar and the victim is now battling for his life in a hospital.
"This incident took place late Saturday, when the victim Ashok Ram forcibly entered the house of Parwati Devi and insisted she continue the extra-marital affair with him despite her repeated refusals," officer in charge Naushad Alam said. "In a fit of anger, she, along with the help of her neighbors, chopped off Ashok's private parts."
Alam said that Ashok was admitted to a hospital for treatment. "Till now, no FIR has been lodged as the victim's family members were busy attending to his treatment. A complaint will be lodged after his return from hospital," he said.
Some villagers told police that Parwati Devi, a mother of three, was having an affair with Ashok for the last few years. After news of the affair spread, the villagers opposed the illicit relationship and Ashok left the village.
A few days ago, he returned to his village and started pressurizing Parwati to continue their affair but she was fed up with Ashok's demands, police said.
Last year in Madhepura district, a woman chopped off an exorcist's genitals when he attempted to rape her.
