Kerala girl chops off genitals of alleged rapist godman

Woman tells police that he had been raping her since she was in class 12 with the connivance of her mother.

A 23-year-old woman nearly chopped off the genitals of a godman, who had allegedly been repeatedly raping her over the past several years with the connivance of her mother.

The woman used a knife to chop off his genitals when he reportedly tried to rape her on Friday night. The godman, identified as Gangesananda was rushed to the Government Medical College Hospital in Thiruvananthapuram by the woman’s relatives. A hospital release said on Saturday morning that he was admitted with 90% of his genitals cut off. He was immediately operated upon and is recovering.

The godman has been visiting her home for the past five years and allegedly had an illicit relationship with the woman’s mother. The woman has told the police that he had been raping her ever since she was studying in class 12. The police have registered a case under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act against the godman and the woman’s mother.

Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan hailed the girl’s act as “brave” and “courageous”.
