A 29-year-old woman in Vellore decided to end the daily torture her husband allegedly put her through by cutting off his testicles, after he reportedly tried to rape her in an inebriated state on Thursday. 

The couple, who were separated for a year, got together two months ago, reported The New Indian Express

Her 32-year-old husband reportedly drank every day and beat her, and would often throw her out of the house. When she was away, he reportedly brought other women home and had sexual relations with them. 

On Thursday morning, around 2.15am when he tried to rape his wife in an intoxicated condition, she tried to stop him. She confronted him about the other women he was sleeping with. However, this did not stop the man and he continued his attempt to rape her. She then brought out a knife and cut off his testicles, the police said. 

On hearing the man screaming, a neighbour rushed to the house and took him to the Gudiyatham Government Hospital, from where he was shifted to the Government Vellore Medical College hospital, reported TNIE. 

According to the FIR filed, 'due to dispute in intercourse, provoked accused abused and cut down the mystery element of the complainant using knife and also threatened his life.'

The woman has been arrested by Gudiyatham town station police under section 294(b), 326 and 506(ii) of the Indian Penal code.
