A man had his genitals successfully reattached after they were “chopped off” by a spurned lover when she found out he was marrying another woman, it is claimed.
The injured man, named only as 26-year-old Irshad, met up with his lover, 30, for “one last time” before he was due to tie the knot with a bride of their parents’ choice.
They arranged a liaison at a guest house in Kattipuram, India, where she cut off his genitals with a knife last month, it is claimed.
Adjoining guests heard him scream and they rushed him to MIMS Hospital in Kozhikode, where doctors claim it was “90 per cent” severed.
Urology and plastic surgery medics carried out an eight-hour surgery to reattached his penis – and the patient is now apparently recovering at home.
Dr. Krishnakumar, senior consultant, said: “To re-implant an amputated penis, all the complex structures in the penis have to be repaired.
“In this case we successfully repaired the arteries which bring the blood to the organ, the veins which carry the blood away, the nerves which give sensibility to the organ, the urethra, the corpora which provides erection and the muscles.
“The patient can be back to normal life in four weeks.”
Police said they have arrested the woman allegedly involved.
A police source said: “He was staying in the lodge with a woman.
“We have taken her into custody for questioning.”
