A woman was arrested on a charge of attempted murder after allegedly cutting off the manhood of her brother-in-law because he raped her, police in India said.

Sidhi police said that they arrested the woman after she admitted to cutting of the manhood of her brother-in-law because he raped her for several days while her husband was out of town for business.

30-year-old Vimlesh Koul was charged with one count of attempted murder, after her brother-in-law, 22, committed suicide by hanging himself on a tree.

The woman told investigators that when her husband went to work in Nashik, her brother-in-law kept her locked up in the home and raped her despite the fact that her three kids were in the house.

At one point, she managed to use a knife to cut off his manhood. Police rushed over to her home, but they found the brother-in-law hanging from a tree.

Police said that the woman was charged with attempted murder because she showed no remorse.
