A woman in Thane district of Maharashtra allegedly cut off the penis of a 27-year-old man with the help of two others as he was harassing her, police said on Wednesday.
The incident took place at Nandivali in Manpada area last night, a police official said.
The man and the 42-year-old woman lived in the same locality, he said, without disclosing the identity of both of them.
The victim was allegedly making unwanted advances towards the woman and stalking her for the last few weeks, she told the police.
A few days ago, the victim told the woman's husband that he liked her, which led to a quarrel between the couple, the official said.
The woman then decided to teach the victim a lesson, and enlisted the help of Tejas Mhatre (22) and Pravin Kenia (25).
She called the victim to a deserted spot Tuesday night and when he reached there, Mhatre and Kenia allegedly thrashed him and the woman cut off his penis, the police official said.
The victim, grievously injured, was taken by some people to a hospital in Dombivali where he underwent surgery and is now stable, said the official.
On his complaint, the police arrested the woman along with Mhatre and Kenia.
All three were sent in police custody for four days on by a local court, he said, adding that further probe was on.
In a separate incident, a man was arrested in Noida on Tuesday for allegedly stalking a woman journalist on social media and threatening her of abduction, the police said. The man, identified as Gulshan Kashyap, a resident of Gurgaon in Haryana, was held near the Sab Mall in Sector 27 after raids were conducted to find him, they said.
"The man would stalk her on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and keep sending her offensive messages and posting comments. When blocked, he would create a new profile and repeat troubling her," inspector Manoj Pant said. "Kashyap threatened to abduct her and also warned her against having any man in her life except him," he said.
