A woman has sliced off the penis of her husband Monday morning because he married another woman in Sirajganj.
His first wife Mita Khatun, 28, from Pabna’s Bhangura fled after the incident.
Zakir told media at the hospital that he married another woman without Mita’s consent several months back. Mita was unaware of the first marriage but later found out after Zakir revealed he was living with the other woman. The first wife must give permission for a second marriage in Bangladeshi laws.
“I went to see Mita in her sister’s house on Sunday. We had a fight in the night. She cut off my penis early in the morning using a blade and fled,” Zakir said.
He underwent surgery Monday afternoon where doctors were able to re-attach the organ. Zakir is expected to make a full recovery.
