Eleven years after she bobbitised a man in Mysuru, a 45-year-old woman in Bengaluru has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. Syeeda Ameeda Nahem, a dentist that practised in the city, had in November 2008 attacked the man after he ended their relationship and then married another woman.
Times of India reported that the victim was invited to the dentist’s clinic and Syeeda offered him some juice, which was spiked with a sedative. After the victim fell unconscious, the dentist used her tools to cut off the man’s penis and flushed it down the drain.
After the man woke up and found himself profusely bleeding. Syeeda took him to a local hospital and then washed her hands off the issue.
Syeeda used to be in a relationship with this man while they lived in Mysuru, but he had broken it off and married another woman. When she found out, she had planned her next course of action: not to let him lead a normal married life.
In her defence, her lawyer told the court that she was innocent and that the victim had met with an accident on the way to her clinic. However, the prosecution argued there were no other wounds on the victim’s body, which proved that this was not true. The city sessions court thus found her guilty and charged her with ten years rigorous imprisonment and a fine of Rs 2 lakh for causing mental agony to the victim.
The judge noted that the accused showed knowledge and intent to commit the crime. He also noted that the victim could seek compensation from the Karnataka Victim Compensation Scheme.
Doctors had told the victim that they could perform reconstructive surgery, but could not do so without the organ. Syeeda allegedly told the victim and his wife that she would not return it.
