A man had his genitals chopped off by a spurned lover in Malappuram, a city in the Indian state of Kerala, after she found out he was marrying another woman, Mail Online reported.
The injured man, named only as 26-year-old Irshad, met up with his lover, 30, for 'one last time' before he was due to tie the knot with a bride of their parents' choice.
The scorned lover invited him to a guest house in Malappuram's Kattipuram area, where she cut off his genitals with a knife on Tuesday, it is claimed.
Adjoining guests heard him scream and they rushed him to MIMS Hospital in Kozhikode, where he is still undergoing treatment.
A video shows him lying in a hospital bed giving the thumbs up despite his condition.
A police official said: "The man is undergoing treatment at MIMS Hospital as of now. He was staying in the lodge with a woman. We have taken her into custody for questioning."
He added that the victim had suffered a partial cut and was first taken to a local hospital but had to be transferred later.
Police have refused to divulge any further information, saying that the case is under investigation.
This is not the first case where a woman has cut off a man’s genitals. In July this year, a Tamil Nadu woman was accused of chopping off her husband's genitals after a fight over his extramarital affair. A Bengali woman had also allegedly resorted to a similar brutal act in July as she was unhappy with her marriage.
A few months ago, a woman had chopped off the genitals of a swami in Kerala. She had said that she had to take such a drastic step as she was being sexually assaulted by him for about seven years. The woman, however, later changed her statement in court.
