Monju Begum, 40, chopped off man's penis as he 'attempted to rape her' before taking it to police as evidence - 31st May 2011

A woman cut off a man's penis as he allegedly attempted to rape her and took it to a police station as evidence against him.

Monju Begum, 40, attacked the man in Bangladesh after he burst into her shack and reportedly launched his sex attack.

The victim then wrapped up the penis in polythene before handing it over to officers, police said.

Mozammel Haq Mazi was taken to hospital where he is being treated - but is denying attempted rape.

He claims he was having an affair with the mother-of-three and she attacked him because he refused to settle down with her.

Monju Begum, from Mirzapur, which is around 100 miles from Dhaka, had apparently been sleeping when the man burst into her home.

Police chief Abul Khaer told reporters: 'As he tried to rape her, the lady cut his manhood off with a knife.

'She then wrapped up the penis in a piece of polythene and brought it to the Jhalakathi police station as evidence of the crime.'

The married father-of-five is expected to be arrested once he has recovered.

Officer Khaer added: 'We shall arrest him once his condition gets better.'

Speaking from hospital, Mr Mazi told the BBC he had been having an affair with the woman, who was his neighbour.

'We were having an affair and recently she suggested that both of us can go and settle down in Dhaka,' he said.

'I refused and told her that I cannot leave my wife and children, so she took revenge on me.'

Surgeons later tried to reattach the penis but they were unable to do so because several hours had passed before it was taken to the hospital. Read More
