The gentleman’s club: Teen mutilates ex-boyfriend after he breaks up with her

Published: May 4, 2012

“The girl’s brothers and father held his arms and legs while she cut off his genitals,” alleged Sajjad’s lawyer Bhatti.

KARACHI: A teenager and her family have been charged with mutilating the private parts of a man after he decided to marry someone else.

On Wednesday, a Malir court granted the young woman, her two brothers and father interim bail and called them for confirmation on May 5.

According to 19-year-old Farea’s lawyer, Irshad Ali Sher, she and 24-year-old Muhammad Sajjad were dating and were allowed to visit each other regularly but this stopped when Sajjad was about to get married to another woman.

In Farea’s version of the story, Sajjad came on to her. “After his nikkah, Sajjad went to Farea’s house and tried to persuade her to sleep with him but she refused,” alleged her lawyer. “Farea, who has polio and used to be a nurse, felt that she was being used. However, Sajjad kept insisting and did not back off. She felt threatened and used the knife in self defence.”

According to the lawyer, when Farea’s father, a shopkeeper, came home, he saw Sajjad bleeding on the floor and called an ambulance to take him to Jinnah hospital.

Sajjad’s lawyer Riaz Ahmed Bhatti has called this version of events ridiculous. He told The Express Tribune that Sajjad broke up with Farea because he suspected that she was cheating on him. In February, Farea texted Sajjad and had asked him to come over and return the gifts they had exchanged.

“The girl’s brothers and father held his arms and legs while she cut off his genitals,” alleged Sajjad’s lawyer Bhatti. “They thought he might die which is why they took him to Jinnah hospital.” Farea’s family registered FIR No. 62/12 under section C76 for attempted rape but they could not prove anything medically, added his lawyer.

A second FIR was registered against Farea’s family at Sharafi Goth police station where they were charged under section 334/34 for cutting off a body part. The bail was set at Rs50,000 each.

According to Sajjad’s lawyer, it was not possible for one person to commit such a crime alone and it was probably planned. “Sajjad is alive, but not really,” he said. “This is bigger than murder.”

Sajjad’s cousin Nawaz told The Express Tribune that surgery had been performed and the doctors were hopeful that everything would return to normal. But in order to reverse the damage, Sajjad would have to go under the knife again for an implant but it was an expensive procedure and they could not afford it.

    On one hand Ahmedi worship places are being desecrated in the name of Islam, and this is happening on the other. What has this country come to? Even dogs live a more honorable life than us.

    What sort of ‘father’ and ‘brother’ would allow someone to visit their house with all the ‘intent and purpose’ so freely? Something about this reeks and I think it’s the word ‘nurse’.

    I agree that being robbed of your manhood is perhaps bigger than murder .. my thoughts go out to the victim.

    @Hamza Malik:
    Qadiani worship places should be called temples not mosques. So they are actually contained in thier shape and attributes as according to a worship place of non muslim community. That’s it.

    How could a father and son hold a person, and allow their daughter/sister respectively to expose the private parts and cut it off?

    For once, I appreciate the irony in this case. So far it is Women who are poured Acid on face for refusing marriage.

    Glad to see at least one Paksitani girl had courage to punish a cheater. Suggest she should be freed like it happens for all accused of “Honour” crimes because she was trying to protect her (and her family’s) “Hounour”!

    This alleged crime, heinous as it sounds, is not something that doesn’t happen in other countries. There have been many examples of similar crimes having taken place in other countries. Murders, rapes, assaults etc. happen everywhere. Recommend

    @Aryabhat:
    Oh yes, guess you’re all for that Indian mothers bury baby boys because they don’t want them too.
    As they say, two wrongs don’t make a right, and by the way there are cases of acid attacks on men, and all are two faces of the same barbaric coin.

    So the man tried to sleep with his ex-girlfriend AFTER his nikah (that’s fornication), she refused and then – with the help of her brother and father – managed to whack off his manly bits. And they freely saw each other before that. This is wrong on so many levels.

    @Ashar: I don’t understand this fetish of people like you. Don’t call Ahmadis muslims, don’t call their mosques mosques .. I mean get your head out of sand of your own sanity’s sake! Calling a banana an apple doesn’t make it an apple! if Ahmadis are muslims (they have all the right to be) you can call them whatever you like and it won’t make any difference! you are doing nothing but bringing bad name to Islam.

    On another level, this story is so disgusting. Poor man, what a life he’ll lead. The injury sustained should be a clear indication of what actually happened. People are animals I swear. Jaahil. P.s. feel free to hit me up on twitter to discuss more issues in Pakistan.
