Woman allegedly chops off partner's penis after he attacks her daughter

The mother was allegedly protecting her 14-year-old daughter

A woman allegedly chopped off her partner's penis after he was accused of attempting to rape her 14-year-old daughter.

The incident occurred in the Mahevaganj area of Uttar Pradesh's Lakhimpur Kheri district in India on Wednesday, 17 April.

The unnamed woman, 36, was living with the man after she split from her alcoholic husband. She told police: "I was working in the farm when the incident took place.

"Fortunately, I returned home in the nick of time and caught him red-handed.

"He even attacked me while I was trying to save my daughter so I brought a knife from the kitchen and chopped off his private parts to teach him a lesson.

"I have no regrets for what I did."

SHO Lakhimpur police station Chandrashekhar Singh said: "The 32-year-old accused has been booked under section 376 (rape) of IPC and the Pocso act.

"Since his condition was critical, he was referred to Lucknow for higher treatment." 

The National Crime Record Bureau claim that 109 children in India face some form of child sexual abuse every day. As a result, the 'Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012' was introduced in India.

The punishment for aggravated sexual assault reads: "Whoever, commits aggravated sexual assault shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which shall not be less than five years but which may extend to seven years, and shall also be liable to fine."

The WHO have said: "Violence against children includes all forms of violence against people under 18 years old.

"For infants and younger children, violence mainly involves child maltreatment (i.e. physical, sexual and emotional abuse and neglect) at the hands of parents and other authority figures.

"Boys and girls are at equal risk of physical and emotional abuse and neglect, and girls are at greater risk of sexual abuse.

"As children reach adolescence, peer violence and intimate partner violence, in addition to child maltreatment, become highly prevalent. 

"Violence against children can be prevented. Preventing and responding to violence against children requires that efforts systematically address risk and protective factors at all four interrelated levels of risk (individual, relationship, community, society)."
