After an argument with her husband, a woman in Delhi has allegedly chewed off her husband’s tongue at their house in outer Delhi’s Ranhola on the night of September 22, 2018.
A case has been registered against the woman, who is reportedly eight months pregnant, police said.
As per the reports, the attack was so gruesome that the man had to undergo a surgery on September 23, 2018. Doctors have told police that his condition is stable.
The woman, identified by the police as 22-year-old Kajal Singh, and her husband, Karan Singh, a street performer, lives in Vikas Nagar area of Ranhola, police said.
During the investigation, it was revealed that the couple had an altercation over a domestic issue around 11 PM on the day of the incident. However, the dispute appeared to have been settled by Karan’s parents, who live with the couple.
“Later around midnight, when the couple was making out in their room, Kajal bit off Karan’s tongue. The man rushed out of room shouting for help. He was bleeding from his mouth. The family members than called up the police and he was rushed to a hospital where he underwent surgery. The severed part of his tongue could not be reattached,” said a police officer, who did not wish to be named.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (outer) Seju P Kuruvilla said a PCR call was received and a police team was rushed to the spot late on Saturday night.
“A written complaint was received from the husband on Sunday. A case under Section 326 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, for causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means, has been registered against the woman. Whether the man will be able to speak again or not, is a matter of treatment. His tongue has been operated and he is hospitalised,” the DCP said.
