Indore, India -Sohanlal Chouhan, a 38-year-old Indore, India man has been jailed after he allegedly cut holes into his wife's vagina and secured it a padlock.
According to police, an investigation was launched in mid-July when the Sohanlal's wife, Sitabai Chouhan, was rushed to the hospital after she swallowed rat poisoning in an attempt to commit suicide.
staff was preparing to insert a tube to help discharge the poison when
they discovered the woman's vagina had been secured with a padlock.
Officials soon learned that the Sohanlal Chouhan installed the padlock on his wife's vagina nearly four years ago because he feared that she would be unfaithful to him.
Investigators say Mr. Chouhan began the procedure by first getting his wife intoxicated. He then used a needle or a drill to bore a hole through both sides of his wife's labia. A small padlock was then inserted through the holes and locked tight every morning before Mr. Chouhan went to work.
Since Mr. Chouhan carried the key with him to work each day, hospital staff were unable to give Mrs. Couhan proper medical care until her husband provided them a key to unlock the padlock.
Investigators say Mr. Chouhan had the key hidden in his sock when they took him into custody.
Mr. Chouhan, who works as a mechanic, justified the torturous abuse by claiming that several women in his family had been unfaithful to their husbands in the past.
He was booked into jail and charged with cruelty and voluntarily causing grievous injury.
