A 23-year-old woman cut off the genitals of a man when he allegedly tried to rape her at her home in Pettah in the city late last night.
The 54-year-old man, Gangshananda Theerthapada, an inmate of an ashram in Kollam, was rushed to the government medical college hospital here with critical injuries in the wee hours. He underwent an emergency surgery and his condition is stable now.
The woman in her complaint stated that the accused has been known to her family for the past few years and has been harassing her since she was a minor. He frequented her home for performing poojas and used to assault her during the visits, the complaint said.
When he tried to abuse her last night, she protested and chopped off his private organ with a knife, it added. A case has been registered against the man under various sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act (POCSO) and IPC 376 (punishment for rape).
No case has been registered against the woman. The investigation is on.
