Dhaka, May 31: A Bangladeshi woman cut off the genitals of a man when he allegedly attempted to rape her. The woman later took the cut-off genitals to a police station as evidence against him, BBC reported.
Monju Begum, a 40-year-old mother-of-three, from Mirzapur, about 160 km from Dhaka, attacked the man after he reportedly burst into her shack and launched a sex attack.
She then wrapped up the man’s genitals in polythene bag and handed them over to police, officials said.
The accused, Mozammel Haq Mazi, was taken to hospital where he is being treated. He has denied the charges of attempted rape.
Haq Mazi claims he was having an affair with Begum and that she attacked him because he refused to settle down with her.
Begum was sleeping when the man burst into her home.
‘As he tried to rape her, the lady cut his manhood off with a knife. She then wrapped it up in a piece of polythene and brought it to the Jhalakathi police station as evidence of the crime,’ police chief Abul Khaer was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
Haq Mazi, a married father-of-five, would be arrested once he recovers, police said.
He told BBC he was having an affair with the woman, who was his neighbour.
‘We were having an affair and recently she suggested that both of us settle down in Dhaka. I refused and told her I cannot leave my wife and children, so she took revenge on me,’ he said.
