A woman has been accused of brutally chopping off her abusive husband's genitals before strangling him to death as revenge for his recurring assault of the woman and her underage daughter in Digas, Gujarat, India on Feb. 13.

The 35-year-old victim, an alcoholic, allegedly frequently comes home drunk and sexually assaults both his 28-year-old wife and their minor daughter.

In a similar but unrelated incident, an Indian wife has been accused of horrifically chopping off her husband's genitals using a sickle after the couple reportedly got into a violent confrontation in Odisha, India on Sept. 27, 2021, Latin Times reported.

The wife, identified as Sulochana, allegedly lopped off her husband Amulya Jena's genitals as the two engaged in a physical fight and began inflicting grievous injuries on each other. The gruesome incident reportedly happened in Baghanata village under Chandbali Police limits in Bhadrak district of Odisha, India.

On the evening of Sept. 27, 2021, a heated argument reportedly erupted between the couple, Jena and Sulochana. The argument soon took an ugly turn and elevated into a melee. Following this, Jena took a bamboo baton and started beating Sulochana with it. The attack resulted in the wife's head injuries and a couple of broken teeth.

In retaliation, Sulochana grabbed a sickle and began swinging it at Jena's groin, effectively severing his genitals and also inflicting deep gashes to his neck.
