Indian woman cuts off genitals of her alleged rapist

A 24-year-old woman in southern India cut off the genitals of a Hindu holy man who tried to rape her and who she alleged has been sexually assaulting her for the past eight years, police said Saturday.

G. Sparjan Kumar, a police officer in Thiruvananthapuram, the Kerala state capital, said the woman fled her home after the incident Friday night and called the police.

The alleged attacker, 54-year-old Gangeshananda Theerthapada, who claims to be a spiritual healer, was reported to be in stable condition after reconstructive surgery.

Pinarayi Vijayan, the state’s chief minister, told reporters on Saturday that it was brave of the woman to take such action. “It’s a courageous and strong act by the woman,” he said.

The New Delhi Television news channel said the woman’s family knew Theerthapada, who used to visit their home to cure her bed-ridden father. She told police that he would rape her whenever he got an opportunity.

When he again visited her home on Friday night and tried to force himself on her, she got hold of a knife and attacked him, Kumar said.

Violent crimes against women have been on the rise in India despite tough laws enacted by the government.

      And he is suppose to be a holy man, instead of praying he is preying. When any woman cut a willie off, go down to the very base and make sure that it is well destroyed beyond repair.

    Good for you girl but you should have burnt it too. Of course a man would talk crap, a story has plenty sides but rape is rape and NO MAN has the right to force himself on any woman. How would you like someone to rape you? I am sorry that they were able to reconstruct it.

    Shotts Boss men in Barbados also rape our women and they mostly get away with it. What would you call it when a ZR driver forces himself on a child who even though she was 14 she looked 12. She now has a child and her mother has another mouth to feed. Why can’t men take a stand and tell another man when he is wrong? Is it some kind of man code that no matter what the hell another does you all have to keep silent. My God is your mothers, sisters and nieces are female, how would you all like it if it was done to them. Judging from the amount of abuse women suffer at the hands of their partners, it would seem that it is okay with their male relatives. Any man who really rapes a woman deserves to loose his penis. I am not cruel just being realistic, no means no, no man owns a woman’s vigina, if he abuses it he should loose his weapon of destruction.

    While I commend the young lady for the act. I would like to draw reference to incidents closer to home here in Barbados. Nothing like this has happen as far as I am aware of in Barbados. And I have never seen so many comments on any rape act reported in the media here in Barbados.

    Is it because we know the alleged perpetrators and frighten to say something?
    Are we frighten we or someone close to us will be targeted?
    Rape cases here in Barbados can take years to come to trial, then literally years to be completed.

    case in point, it was reported in this very said online paper about a young lady being raped as a girl of 8. Now years later at the age of 24, her case has just begun. WHO ARE WE PUTTING ON TRIAL?

      I agree, every thing in Barbados is very slow and wrong due to poor leadership and management systems in place by our politicians. Plantation syndrome is a very serious issue also from both the 95% and the 1% of Barbados. I think what sparked such a numerous response is the thrill and excitement every one got from the fact that the man lost his dick.
