A 35-year-old man’s right hand was chopped off by a family after a dispute over missing cows in a village in Madhya Pradesh’s Raisen district, police said on Monday.
Sultanpur police station’s assistant sub-inspector Malkhan Singh Meena said two people have been arrested while three are absconding in connection with the incident in Pipalwali village on Saturday.
Kalu Sahu went to Sattu Yadav’s house to look for his two cows which were missing since Friday. Sahu, who was not satisfied with Yadav’s reply about his cows, allegedly abused Yadav and an altercation followed. The enraged Yadav family tied Sahu to a tree, beat him up and then allegedly chopped off his right hand with a sword and badly damaged his left hand.
None of the villagers allegedly came to Sahu’s help while he was being attacked. A video of the incident showing Sahu lying on the ground with his arm severed and legs tied asking for water has emerged.
Sahu’s family rescued him after they came to know of the attack and also informed the police. Sahu was first taken to a local community health centre and then sent to state capital Bhopal.
Meena said they have arrested Sattu Yadav and his son Rajpal Yadav, while the other three other members of the family, including a woman, are absconding. All of them have been charged with attempted murder, the police officer added.
