A cheating Indian woman has bitten off a chunk of her husband's penis.



The 45-year-old woman from New Delhi, named only as Jayanthi, has been charged with attempted murder after she bit off part of her husband's penis when he caught her cheating on him.

Jayanthi's farmer husband, Senthamarai, took his wife to watch a play in Tamil Nadu's Vellore district, but during the performance, the woman snuck off to meet police official Prakash Babu.

In the midst of the performance, Senthmarai started to worry about how long she was taking, and went to find his wife when he stumbled across the two lovers.

A police officer said: ''Enraged, Senthamarai grabbed his wife and her lover and threatened to make their relationship public.

''Noise from the festivities drowned out Dhatchanamoorthi's cries for help and in the scuffle that ensued, Senthamarai's 'dhoti' (trousers made of cloth) fell off.

''Jayanthi, fearing she and her lover would be thrashed, wanted to escape before villagers reached the spot. She bit his penis, severing part of it, and fled with her lover.''
