In a shocking incident, a man sewed his wife’s genitals with an aluminum thread after he suspected her of having an extra-marital affair.
The incident took place in the Milak area in UP’s Rampur on Saturday.
The man has been arrested while the woman is undergoing treatment at the district hospital.
The husband reportedly first asked his wife to give a ‘test’ and prove her loyalty.
When she agreed, he tied her hands and feet and allegedly sewed her genitals with an aluminum thread.
After the incident, the husband fled the spot, leaving his wife bleeding profusely bleeding.
The woman somehow managed to inform her mother who lives nearby and she rushed her to the hospital.
The mother then lodged a complaint at the Milak police station. The husband was arrested late on Saturday evening.
Meanwhile, a panel of doctors at the district hospital has examined the woman and confirmed the assault.
“The medical examination of the woman has confirmed that she has suffered serious injuries. We have arrested her husband and he will be sent to jail. We are ensuring that she gets proper treatment at the district hospital,” Rampur SP Shogun Gautam told reporters.
The woman said she was often beaten up by her husband. The couple had a baby, who died soon after delivery, she said.
