54-year-old man bobbitised by girl in Kerala

Gangeshananda Theerthapadar, who belongs to the Thiruvananthapuram centre of the Kollam Panmana Ashram, was a regular visitor to the house of this girl since the past seven years. According to the woman's statement recorded by the police, the "god-man" has been raping her since she was a minor, and has continued the abuse for about eight years.

Exhausted from her exploitation, she slashed his genitals with a knife on Friday night. The girl chopped off his penis with a sharp instrument and immediately called cops.

He was brought to Thiruvananthapuram Medical College hospital on Friday night at around 12:40 am.

The Pettah police have registered a case against the godman under the provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act.

Local media reports said the woman's mother has also been detained as she knew about the crime but failed to report it.




Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan reacted to the incident and said that it was fearless of her to take such a step.

The police were also informed after the incident. Police have detained the girl's mother who reportedly had been aware of the alleged rape. A team of experts conducted a plastic surgery on the godman, who is said to is be out of danger now. "A 54-year-old man from Kollam was admitted at 12.39 am to the hospital on Saturday". Her father suffered a paralysis attack a few years ago.

Prameela Devi, member of the Kerala State Women's Commission, said such an act is unacceptable.

However, no case has been registered against the woman but she woman has been taken to a women's shelter run by the government.

"Such an act by anyone, especially when it comes under the guise of a religious tag, is in no way acceptable", she said.
