A woman in Central India told police she cut off her brother-in-law´s penis after he had repeatedly raped her.
The 32-year-old and her three children had been living with the man while her husband worked more than 700 miles away. When the man tried to rape her last week, she reached for a sickle and severed his penis.
The woman then handed the penis to police as evidence and said it was the only way to stop him from attacking her. She was charged with rape. Her brother-in-law was found hanging from a tree near the house.
