A woman in India has been arrested for allegedly chopping off her husband’s penis during an argument over his extramarital affair.
The mother-of-four, 30, was arrested in Gudiyatham in Tamil Nadu as she made her way to her parents’ house – with her husband’s genitals still in her purse.
The husband and wife, identified only as Jagadeesan and Sarasu respectively, had been married for 14 years when the incident occurred on Thursday around 3am.
They had been living separately for a year until recently, when they moved back in with one another at the request of their 13-year-old son.
The couple, who met working in the garments industry, fought regularly and often accused one another of having extramarital affairs, police said.
On Thursday the couple were fighting well into the early hours of the morning, when Sarasu pulled out a sharp night and cut off her husband’s penis, police said.
