In a shocking incident, a sadhu in Uttar Pradesh reportedly cut off his genitals after being troubled by the allegations on him of alleged love affairs by villagers. He chopped off his genitals during Navaratri.
The sadhu, identified as Madani Baba has been admitted to the hospital in Bamna district. He has alleged that a conspiracy was hatched against him by a group of people as they did not want him to build ashram on an empty land.
He said that the group had tarnished his image by linking his name with a woman who stays in a nearby area. "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 district police have initiated an investigation.
