A sadhu or monk in Uttar Pradesh cut off his genitals after he was accused of love affair in Bamna district. He undertook the extreme measure during Navratri celebrations after a group of local residents linked his name to a woman living nearby.
Police say that Madani Baba was disturbed by the allegations leveleld against him. He’s currently receiving treatment at a hospital in Bamna. A report by news agency ANI said that Madani Baba alleged conspiracy by a group of people because they did not want him to build ashram on an empty land.
“The sadhu happens to be a 28-year-old man residing in Kamsin village. He cut off his genitals after an allegation surfaced against him. His treatment is underway,” Bamna district hospital doctor Balveer Singh told news agency ANI.
The cops have launched an investigation. Local cops said that the sadhu had held at least two persons responsible for constantly causing him ‘mental torture.’ A senior officer said that the action was being taken against those two named individuals.
Doctors treating him said that sadhu’s condition was critical since 80 percent of his genitals had come off his body.
Only a few days ago, a similar shocking incident had taken place in Uttar Pradesh, a man and his two sons allegedly chopped off a Class 11 boy’s genitals because they found him in an objectionable position with his daughter.
