LAKHIMPUR KHERI, UTTAR PRADESH: A 36-year-old woman in India said that she has no regrets after she cut off her boyfriend’s genitals in the Mahevaganj area of Lakhimpur Kheri, located in the state of Uttar Pradesh. The incident took place on Wednesday, August 17, 2022, after the man allegedly raped the woman’s14-year-old daughter. The woman came home just in time to catch her 32-year-old man in the act. She had been living with him for the last two years after separating from her alcoholic husband, the Times of India reported. 

The unidentified mother recalled seeing the horrifying act and confronted the man inside the home they shared. She said, “I was working on the farm when the incident took place. Fortunately, I returned home in the nick of time and caught him red-handed. He even attacked me while I was trying to save my daughter, so I brought a knife from the kitchen and chopped off his private parts to teach him a lesson,” she continued. “I have no regrets for what I did,” she added. 

The woman’s 32-year-old boyfriend has been booked on a rape charge under the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act, which was passed in 2012 and attempts to protect a child who becomes the victim of a crime, such as sexual assault, sexual harassment, or the production of child pornography. Repeated calls from a group of neighbors led to the police responding to the suspected domestic violence, and when they arrived, they found a man covered in blood with his genitals severed.

SHO Lakhimpur police station Chandrashekhar Singh said, “The 32-year-old accused has been booked under section 376 (rape) of IPC and the Pocso act.” The alleged rapist was admitted to a local hospital where he is in critical condition, while police continue their investigation. It is unclear if the mother will face any charges. 

Hindustan Times reported a similar type of incident where a 45-year-old woman chopped off the genitals of a man, who had allegedly tried to rape her by sneaking into her house in Madhya Pradesh’s Sidhi district in March 2021. The incident occurred in Umariha village, at around 11 pm.

As per the complaint lodged by the woman, her husband had gone out of town for some work when the incident took place, Khaddi police outpost in-charge sub-inspector (SI) Dharmendra Singh Rajput said. “The woman was at home with her 13-year-old son when the accused (45) entered their house. However, thinking that a thief had sneaked in, her son ran to safety out of the house,” he added. 

The accused was booked under IPC section 354 (criminal force on woman with an intent to outrage her modesty), 456 (house-trespass or house-breaking by night), 294 (obscene acts), 506 (criminal intimidation), and others.
