An Indian woman bit off a chunk of her husband’s penis when he caught her with another man.
45-year-old Jayanthi had gone out with her farmer husband to watch a play in Tamil Nadu’s Vellore district on Monday but snuck away to meet her lover, police official Prakash Babu told AFP.
“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 a hospital and informed the police.
The victim is now recuperating in hospital, the police said. As for the woman, she was arrested on Wednesday, police disclosed today.
The Times of India daily said Jayanthi had confessed to the attack and been sent to Vellore Central Prison for women.
