A mother-of-three reportedly chopped off her brother-in-law’s genitals before handing them in as evidence at a police station in India.
The 32-year-old woman took officers aback when she entered the station in the Sidhi district of Madhya Pradesh, clutching the severed organ.
The woman, accompanied by her three children, told officers that it was the only way to stop her brother-in-law attacking her.
The woman was staying with her brother-in-law as her husband worked more than 700 miles away, in Nashik, Maharashtra. But he had allegedly assaulted her many times while she stayed in his house.
She told police that she faked consent when her brother-in-law attacked her, before hacking off his privates with a sickle.
Before the police were able to get medical support to the injured man, he had already committed suicide, reports the Times of India.
His body was reportedly found hanging from a tree near their house.
