A 32-year-old woman in Sidhi district Bhopal has been booked for attempt to murder for chopping off her brother-in-laws genitals to defend herself against repeated assaults.
“This is a rare case and has to be investigated for a proper chargesheet,” said Sidhi SP Abid Khan in an interview with Times of India.
The police were left astounded as the woman walked into the police station holding the severed organ, as evidence of the assaults, along with her three children, alleging it was the only way to stop her brother-in-law.
The police said that before they could reach the man to provide him medical support, he had committed suicide. His body was found handing from a tree near the house.
The woman, whose husband works in Nashik, claimed that her brother-in-law, who was living with her, had been raping her for days. She told the police that during his last attempt, she faked consent and then severed his genitals with a sickle, adding that she had no regrets for her act.
