Woman Lashes Out At Attacker
The woman, a married mother of three, was attacked Saturday night while she was sleeping in her shanty in Jhalakathi district. "As he tried to rape her, the lady cut his penis off with a knife. She then wrapped up the penis in a piece of polythene and brought it to the Jhalakathi police station as evidence of the crime," police chief Abul Khaer said. The woman filed a case accusing the man -- who is also 40 and a married father of five -- of attempted rape, saying that he harassed her for six months. The severed penis was kept at the police station, and the rape suspect was undergoing treatment in the hospital. "We shall arrest him once his condition gets better," Khaer added.
