A man has been arrested for allegedly inserting the plastic grip of a motorcycle handle into the private part of his wife almost two years ago after a quarrel over infidelity in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore, police said.
Doctors at the state-run Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital said a complex surgery of fours had to be performed on Tuesday to remove the plastic grip which had been pushed right up the 30-year-old woman’s uterus, urine bladder and small intestine.
According to the 36-year-old tribal woman’s complaint on Sunday, her husband’s atrocity had left her in unbearable pain for the past two years. The accused who works with a music band was arrested after the complaint.
A statement from the MY Hospital added that infection had spread in the area since the grip remained stuck in the uterus for a long time and it could have spread further to other parts of the body if the operation was not carried out promptly.
“The victim’s husband, Prakash Bhil alias Rama (35) put the grip into her private parts two years ago after a quarrel. She did not disclose it to anyone till the pain became unbearable,” Chandan Nagar police station in charge Rahul Sharma said. He said following the woman’s complaint, the man was arrested on Sunday.
“The woman, a resident of Dhar district, who is a mother of six kids, was married to the accused about 15 years ago in Dhar district, 251 km west of Bhopal,” he added.
“Two years ago the couple fought over the kids. The man beat her up and inserted the bike handle piece in her private part in a fit of rage. The woman didn’t share her ordeal out of shame and worried over the future of the kids.”
Hindustan Times reports that Sharma said a few months ago the woman felt unbearable pain again. She went to a private hospital where she was asked by the hospital staff to undergo an operation immediately after depositing Rs one lakh.
“On hearing about the huge amount of money the poor woman preferred to run away from the hospital. On Sunday, she reached Chandan Nagar police station in bad shape,” he said.
According to the head of the surgery department of the hospital Dr. RK Mathur, the plastic piece had damaged the uterus, small intestine and urinary tract of the woman. “The operation went on for four hours and we removed the plastic piece. We also treated the damaged parts. Her condition is now stable,” said Mathur.
