Months after the genitals of a self-styled godman Swami Gangeshananda from Kerala was chopped off, a similar case is now being reported from Malappuram district.
On Tuesday, a youth named Irshad was admitted to a hospital in Kozhikode, after his genitals were chopped off.
Confirming the incident to TNM, Kuttipuram police said that Irshad was staying in a lodge in Kuttipuram in Malappuram district, when the incident occurred.
Kuttippuram Sub-Inspector told TNM: "He is undergoing treatment at MIMS hospital as of now. He was staying in this lodge with a woman. We have taken her into custody for questioning."
Tirur DySP told TNM that Irshad was first admitted to Nadakakvu hospital, from where he was later shifted to MIMS.
The police refused to divulge further information, maintaining that they are in the process of collecting information.
