A 46-year-old man in Gujarat’s Juhupra, who had cut his wife’s tongue with a knife last week, has revealed to the cops that he was forced to do so as their tongues got stuck to each others during a passionate kiss.
Going by the report of a leading daily Times of India, the accused, Ayyub Mansuri, told cops that on October 9, the couple were involved in private matter when he found that his wife Tasleem’s tongue fused with his. So, he tried to separate the two tongues, during which his wife’s tongue was severed.
Mansuri further told the cops that he panicked after realizing that his wife’s tongue was severed and that she was bleeding heavily. He told the cops he had run away after locking her inside the house.
The police have filed a case on the victim’s complaint.
The woman was admitted to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel hospital near Ellis Bridge. Doctors said the victim is still unable to eat or speak properly. However, the doctors have managed to reattach the woman’s tongue.
The victim has been put on liquid diet after the surgery as she is facing difficulties in consuming food.
The victim is the third wife of the accused. It is alleged that he repeatedly thrashed the woman after marrying her in March 2018. Mansur is accused of burning his first wife to death for which he is facing a murder charge.
