New Delhi: A 22-year-old woman on Wednesday allegedly chopped off genitals of her boyfriend when he refused to marry her and have sex with her. The incident took place in Delhi’s Mangolpuri and the woman along with her family is absconding since committing the crime.
The 35-year-old victim was admitted to Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital. Doctors told the police that the man is out of danger now. “Though the man has undergone a surgery, doctors fear that the reattachment may not be successful,” said a police officer.
A case under section 326 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means) of Indian Penal Code has been registered at the Mangolpuri police station against the absconding woman, reports HT.
The man is a street vendor, who returned from work at 11:30 when he received a call from woman’s sister-in-law. She told him to come to their place. “The sister-in-law told him that his girlfriend wanted to meet and discuss some urgent issues,” the police officer said.
As soon as he reached there, the duo fell into an argument, over their wedding. The victim told the police that the woman then pushed him inside the bathroom, undressed him, and forced him to have sex with her, but when he refused to listen to what she said, she became angry.
“This sent her flying into a rage. Furious, she snipped off his genitals. The crime unfolded in the presence of the woman’s brother and sister-in-law, who were in the house and kept motivating the woman to teach her boyfriend a lesson,” said a senior investigator.
He was rushed to a hospital after he screamed for help on bleeding profusely. Hearing his screams, some neighbours came out of their homes and called the police control room. By the time a police van arrived, the man had fallen unconscious.
“We rushed him to the hospital and he underwent a surgery to rejoin his private parts. After he regained consciousness, we recorded his statement. He initially refused to file an FIR against the woman, but agreed later,” the officer added.
The 35-year-old victim is unmarried and lives with his family in Mangolpuri. They were in a relationship for a few years. “The woman was possessive about him. When she learnt that his family members were against their relationship, she insisted on marrying him and started pressuring him,” the officer said. Teams have been formed to raid the possible hideouts of the absconding accused and bring her to book at the earliest.
