Woman chopped off her brother-in-law’s genitals before handing them as evidence to police.
The woman was staying with her brother-in-law as her husband worked more than 700 miles away, in Nashik, Maharashtra. But he had allegedly assaulted her many times while she stayed in his house. She told police that she faked consent when her brother-in-law attacked her, before hacking off his privates with a sickle.
Before the police were able to get medical support to the injured man, he had already committed suicide, reported the Times of India. His body was reportedly found hanging from a tree near their house.
