The Vellore police on Wednesday arrested a 45-year old woman for biting off a part of her husband’s penis during a scuffle with him after he caught her with her lover in Thuraimoolai village near Gudiyatham in Vellore district.
A 45-year-old woman bit of her husband’s private part after the latter caught his wife in a compromising position with her lover in Thuraimoolai village near Gudiyatham in Vellore district. The woman, Jayanthi, has been charged with a case under sections IPC Sections 294(b) (obscenity in public), 324 (causing hurt with dangerous weapons or means) and 307 (attempt to murder).
The incident happened in the early hours of Monday after which villagers took a bleeding Senthamarai and the severed part of his penis to Vellore Government Hospital and later to Rajiv Gandhi Government Medical College and Hospital in Chennai for advanced care.
Senthamarai, 55, a farmer, and Jayanthi had taken part in a village temple festival on Sunday as part of the auspicious Aadi month festivities.
After the temple event, they went for a street play, the officer said. Around 1.30am Jayanthi slipped out of the crowd on the pretext of needing to relieve herself.
When Jayanthi failed to return more than an hour later, a worried Senthamarai went in search of her. He later found her in a compromising position with another villager, Dhatchanamoorthi.
“Enraged, Senthamarai grabbed his wife and her lover and threatened to make their relationship public,” the officer said. “ Noise from the festivities outside drowned out Dhatchanamoorthi’s cries for help.”
