Enraged over repeated attempts by their father-in-law to sexually assault them, two women in a Bihar village chopped off the man's hands to teach him a lesson, police said Sunday.
"The hands of Radheyshyam Singh, a resident of Bhanas village under Dinara block in Rohtas district, were chopped off by his daughters-in-law after he attempted to molest them," Deputy Superintendent of Police Krishna Kumar Singh said.
Another district police official said the daughters-in-law told police that they were fed up with repeated attempts by Singh to molest them.
Two days ago, he tried to molest one of his daughters-in-law as she was busy cutting vegetables. After the woman raised an alarm, the other daughter-in-law rushed to intervene and told the man to keep off. Singh then tried to molest the other daughter-in-law, police said.
"They overpowered him and chopped off both his hands with a sharp weapon," police said.
Radheyshyam Singh was admitted to a hospital in Varanasi after initial treatment in Rohtas, police said.
Police have lodged a case in this connection on the basis of the statement of both the daughters-in-law.
