A woman who hacked off her drunk husband’s penis when he tried to rape her in front of their children is facing attempted murder charges
A woman who hacked off her drunk husband’s penis when he tried to rape her in front of their children is facing attempted murder charges.
The enraged wife, not named in local media, told police her husband named as R. Ravinder had come home after a lunchtime drinking session and began to grope her.
She says she grabbed a kitchen knife and sliced off his genitals, say investigators in Sirisedu, India.
Ravinder, 40, is reported to be recovering in hospital, but local media did not report whether surgeons were able to reattach his severed manhood.
A local police chief told Indian media: ‘The incident took place when Ravinder was harassing the woman after getting drunk.
‘Neighbours told us that the couple often fought whenever Ravinder came home drunk.
‘Unable to bear the harassment, she took a knife and chopped off his penis. We have filed a case under section 307 of IPC (attempt to murder) against the woman.
‘Ravinder is now being treated at a government hospital in Jammikunta.’
But his wife remains defiant, saying she acted in self-defence.
She told local media that her husband harassed her sexually every time he got drunk.

But when he tried to rape her in the presence of her children, she became so angry and frightened that she was forced to use extreme measures to stop him.
It was not clear whether rape charges against the injured husband were being pursued.
Three months ago in a similar incident in Tamil Nadu, a wife now facing assault charges chopped off her husband’s penis when she discovered he was cheating on her.
