London: Meng Tsao has been recently arrested for launching a brutal attack and cutting off breasts of suspected love rival named Xiao Lin.

The woman has been accused of knocking Lin unconscious before stripping her naked, tying her up and cutting off her breasts with a pair of scissors, the Mirror reported.

The assault happened in the Chinese city of Heshan in south-eastern Guangdong province, where Lin was home watching TV.

Detectives said that Tsao admitted to have carried out the attack and said it was because the other woman had stolen her husband.

However, when they spoke to the alleged attacker’s husband, Meng Pan, he denied that he had been in an affair with Lin, although he did have a crush on her.

Lin was rushed to hospital, where medics told her it was impossible to reattach her severed breasts.
