We love when a wrong-doer gets their just desserts in the most deserving of ways, but this story is not for the squeamish.
An Indian teenager, believed to be 17 or 18 years-old, took a knife to the man trying to rape her, and wound up cutting his penis clean off. To top it all off, the man is actually the girl’s uncle who had already raped her once the month before. The man is currently being hunted by the police.
According to at least one news source, the girl was taken to her uncle, a well-known tantric in the area, to cure her after falling ill. When the uncle tried to repeat his horrific crime, she was prepared for him, arming herself with a knife. As soon as he’d fled, presumably leaving behind his you-know-what, she reported the incident to the village council, but they failed to tackle the issue to her satisfaction, so she contacted several female police officers at her local station.
Police in her area, the district of Madhepura in Bihar, commended the young woman on her “courage.”
“The incident happened 20 days ago. Initially the girl went to the village council but when that was unable to resolve the matter the case was brought to me,” said superintendent and senior officer AK Singh told the Independent. “We then filed a case at the women’s police station.”
While many sex crimes are perpetrated across India (and beyond) on a day-to-day basis, the publicity on the often-shocking sexual violence has steadily increased since the 2012 gang-rape and murder of a student in Delhi. Thankfully, this is one case that doesn’t end quite so gruesomely — at least not for the victim.
