An Indian woman who bit off a chunk of her husband's penis when he caught her with another man has been charged with attempted murder, police said Friday.
When she had not returned after more than an hour, the husband went to look for her.
"He found her in close contact with her lover. A scuffle followed during which the dhoti tunic that the man was wearing fell off. She bit off a part of his penis before running away with her lover," Babu said.
The victim is now recuperating in hospital, the police said.
The Times of India daily said Jayanthi had confessed to the attack and been sent to Vellore Central Prison for women.
