Keonjhar: A married woman allegedly chopped off the private part of a man over an illicit love affair at Nuagaan under Harichandanpur police station in Keonjhar.
Seriously injured youth identified as Rajendra Kumar has been admitted to district headquarters hospital. Doctors are planning to refer him to SCB Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack as his condition is critical.
Rajendra, a resident of Jharbeda under Pandapada police limits works in a company in Chennai and had returned to his village recently during puja vacation.
The accused woman with whom he had a love relation had invited him to her home to enjoy Kalipuja in the area, he said. Rajendra came to her house yesterday. She had served food and had a good discussion during the day time. “In the night, she made me drunk and cut off my genital when I was in an unconscious state,” the victim said.
When he regained conscious, he saw some others assisted her in committing the crime, Rajendra added.
Family members of the victim lodged a complaint with Harichandanpur police.
Prime facie, it seems the youth tried to have physical relationship with the woman. So, her-in-laws members might have attacked him, DSP Harish Chandra Pandey said.
Police will take appropriate action after investigation, he added.
