Kottayam : A man accused of assaulting his daughter, cut his genitals with a blade in prison on Tuesday.
He threw away the partly-cut organ. Police learnt of the self-harm when the man cried in excruciating pain. He had used the razor given to him for shaving.
Police rushed him to the hospital where doctors conducted an emergency procedure and stitched the severed portion together.
The man’s condition is now stable.
Incidentally, he was granted bail but continued in remand with no one coming forward to stand as surety.
