Surgeons at Bhopal’s Apex Hospital have performed an intricate surgery on the 28-year-old man who was bobbitised by his two brothers-in-law early this week at Berasia in rural part of Bhopal district.
The doctors are hopeful that post surgery the victim, Bhupendra Jain, would be able to pass urine without any difficulty. Doctors are, however, apprehensive if the victim would be able to lead a normal sexual life.
Jain was brutally attacked by his two brothers-in-law on October 6, who were allegedly upset over their sister’s inter-caste marriage.
The accused, Rakesh and Suresh Kushwaha, had called Jain to their house in Mahuakheda on the pretext of ending the dispute, where they overpowered the victim and slashed his private part with a knife. Both the accused were arrested on Wednesday, police said.
“A major part of the organ (penis) was cut and even the testes had been severed when the patient was brought to us,” said Dr Hasib Khan of the Apex Hospital, where Jain is admitted.
“There had been severe bleeding and he was brought to us from Berasia quite late, still we did our best to minimise the damage,” said Dr Khan. The victim is still in the hospital and would remain under medical supervision for some time, he said.
Meanwhile, town inspector of Berasia police station Rajendra Raghuvanshi said the victim was attacked brutally and his private part was thrown away by the accused after it was severed.
“The accused have been arrested,” he said. According to police, it is likely that the severed part of the organ was taken by stray animals.
