“I was desperate to have children. I used to beg him but he said he’d make love to someone else instead. I’d been dealing with the torture for years and I couldn’t take any more,’ the woman declared. Rita Yadav hit her husband over the head with a stone grinder to make him unconscious and then used a kitchen knife to slash his penis. After this, she delivered herself to the local police station. Her husband, who was in critical condition because he had lost a lot blood, was transported at Jaypee Hospital. ‘We operated him immediately and we were able to save both his life and the organ with a re-implantation.’ Doctors reattached the penis in a five-hour operation and Ved Prakash, 31, is now recovering in hospital. He is a taxi-driver. His wife has been arrested and charged for voluntarily causing grievous hurt with dangerous weapons.
