A woman making headlines as the “Sex-starved Indian Wife” had cut off her husband’s penis after he refused to make love to her for 10 years, which she says is due to him having extramarital affairs.
Rita Yadav, 28, attacked her husband Ved Prakash, 31, at their home in Khora Colony, in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, in northern India, on Thursday morning.
“He used to tell me he hated me,” the wife said. “We used to fight daily and he told me he hated looking at my face. He always threatened he would have an affair. I was desperate to have children. I used to beg him but he said he’d make love to someone else instead. I’d been dealing with the torture for years and I couldn’t take any more.”
When Prakash had come home from work, he attempted to get through his usual routine and go to the shower, but his wife met him at the door and hit him in the head with a stone grinder. She then used a kitchen knife to slash his penis.
The Daily Mail has more:
When Ved, a taxi driver, arrived home from his night shift yesterday morning he went straight into the shower.
But as he stepped out Yadav hit him over the head with a stone grinder and he fell unconscious.
She then used a kitchen knife and slashed his penis.
Yadav locked him in the bathroom and she then handed herself into the local police station.
Ved regained consciousness after 30 minutes and called his friend in agony, who immediately took him to Jaypee Hospital.
Inspector Jai Prakash Chaubey, at Khora Police Station, said: ‘She came to us and told us what she had done and we recorded her statement.
‘She claimed they had regular fights and accused him of having an extra-marital affair.
‘She has confessed to attacking him and slashing his genitals in anger.’
Dr Saurabh Gupta, a surgeon, at Jaypee Hospital, said: ‘He was in a critical condition when he arrived at the hospital.
‘His penis was almost fully detached from the base and he had lost a lot blood.
‘His penis had been cut with a sharp knife and the cut was nearly 4-inch deep.
‘We operated immediately and we were able to save both his life and the organ with a re-implantation.’
Doctors managed to reattach the penis in a five-hour operation and Ved is now out of danger.
He is still in hospital recovering.
Rita is awaiting trial having been arrested and charged under Section 326 – voluntarily causing grievous hurt with dangerous weapons – of the Indian Penal Code.
