In an unbelievable event, a 40-year-old Kolkata woman allegedly cut off her husband's ears, who is in his early 20. The woman, reportedly assisted by her sister, allegedly cut off husband's ears at gunpoint in Kolkata's Narkeldanga on Tuesday.
The victim identified as Tanveer, a resident of Narkeldanga was immediately rushed to hospital by his family after they came to know about the incident. The woman named Mumtaz and her sister after cutting off his ears thought that he had died after the incident but Tanveer somehow managed to escape the spot. "She cut my ears and if I tried to resist they would have killed me," he said
Tanveer was later held captive at the wife, Mumtaz's residence and wasn't allowed to meet his family or go back to his native place. Even Tanveer's mother sold their house to free her son from the lady n lieu of the huge amount of money. But Mumtaz allegedly took the money and kept torturing him.
Tanveer's family accused that the police denied to lodge an FIR against Mumtaz and arresting her and her people. The police, however, claimed that the accused persons have absconded.
20-year-old Tanveer was duped by his friend into marrying Mumtaz two years ago. According to sources, Mumtaz tortured Tanveer regularly. He tried eloping on several occasions but Mumtaz's goons allegedly brought him back every time.
An investigation has been launched into the matter, said police.
