Police have slammed an attempted murder charge on a woman who bit off a chunk of her husband’s penis when he caught her with another man.
The 45-year-old Indian woman, Jayanthi, who uses only one name, had gone out with her farmer husband to watch a play in Tamil Nadu’s Vellore district Monday, but snuck away to meet her lover, AFP quoted police official Prakash Babu as saying.
After waiting for over an hour, her husband decided to go look for her.
“He found her in close contact with her lover. A scuffle followed during which the dhoti tunic that the man was wearing fell off. She bit off a part of his penis before running away with her lover,” Babu said.
Villagers rushed the bleeding husband along with the severed part of the penis to hospital and informed police. The woman was arrested on Wednesday.
The victim is now recuperating in hospital.
According to The Times of India daily, Jayanthi had confessed to the attack and been sent to Vellore Central Prison for women.
