(Scroll down for video) A student in India, was fed up by being a victim of sexual abuse and decided to stop it once and for all.

The victim cut off the genitals of a religious healer who raped her while he stayed with her family in Thiruvananthapuram.

The student told police that she had been sexaully abused by 54-year-old Gangeshananda Theerthapada, a self proclaimed religious guru who is known as a Hari Swami, for the past 7 years.

The sexual abuse began when the victim was 16 years old.

The victim, who is now 23 years old, told police that she let her mother know about the sexual abuse, but her mother did nothing to stop the guru.

Instead, the mother repeatedly invited the man to their home to perform heal sessions for her bedridden father despite knowing about the abuse.

This week, when Theerthapada came into the woman’s room, she pulled out a knife, which she had hidden under her pillow, and she cut off his genitals.

Theerthapada was rushed to a hospital, where he has undergone surgery. He was charged with rape.

The victim’s mother was also arrested for failing to protect her daughter.

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan was seen on video laughing as he said that the woman was brave for committing the self-defense act. “It’s a courageous and strong act by the woman,” he said.
