Father-in-law's hands chopped off in Bihar

Enraged over repeated attempts by their father-in-law to sexually assault them, two women in a Bihar village chopped off the man’s hands to teach him a lesson he would never forget, police said on Sunday.

“The hands of Radheyshyam Singh, a resident of Bhanas village under Dinara block in Rohtas district, were chopped off by his daughters-in-law after he attempted to molest  them,” Deputy Superintendent of Police Krishna Kumar Singh said.

The daughters-in-law told the police that they were fed up with repeated attempts by Radheyshyam Singh to sexually molest them.

Two days ago, Radheyshyam Singh tried to molest one of his daughters-in-law as she was busy cutting vegetables.

The woman raised an alarm, and the other daughter-in-law rushed to intervene, and also told the man to keep off.

 Radheyshyam then tried to molest the other daughter-in-law, police said.

“They overpowered him and chopped off both his hands with a sharp weapon (cleaver),” police said.

Radheyshyam Singh was admitted to hospital in Varanasi after initial treatment in Rohtas, police said. Police have lodged a case in this connection on the basis of the statement of the daughters-in-law.
