Doctors at a hospital in Indore on Tuesday removed a six-inch piece of plastic of a bike handle from a woman’s uterus that her husband had allegedly inserted two years ago, police said.
According to the 36-year-old tribal woman’s complaint on Sunday, her husband’s atrocity had left her in unbearable pain for the past two years. The accused who works with a music band was arrested after the complaint.
“The woman, a resident of Dhar district, who is a mother of six kids, was married to the accused about 15 years ago in Dhar district, 251 km west of Bhopal,” said Chandan Nagar police station in-charge Rahul Sharma.
“Two years ago the couple fought over the kids. The man beat her up and inserted the bike handle piece in her private part in a fit of rage. The woman didn’t share her ordeal out of shame and worried over the future of the kids.”
Sharma said a few months ago the woman felt unbearable pain again. She went to a private hospital where she was asked by the hospital staff to undergo an operation immediately after depositing Rs one lakh.
“On hearing about the huge amount of money the poor woman preferred to run away from the hospital. On Sunday, she reached Chandan Nagar police station in bad shape,” he said.
Police registered a case and admitted her to MY government hospital, said the officer.
According to the head of the surgery department of the hospital Dr. RK Mathur, the plastic piece had damaged the uterus, small intestine and urinary tract of the woman.
“The operation went on for four hours and we removed the plastic piece. We also treated the damaged parts. Her condition is now stable,” said Mathur.
