A polyamorous priest bled to death when his penis was cut off by one of his two wives after he announced his intention to marry for a third time.
Maulvi Vakil Ahmad, 57, already had two wives when he made his wishes known to his second wife Hazra that he wanted to marry a third lucky lady.
Harza was unhappy with the cleric’s decision and the two had a heated argument over the situation.
Seeing no alternative, Harza chopped off his penis with a kitchen knife as he slept, according to Times of India (TOI).
The incident, which occurred when the first wife was not home, is said to have taken place in Shikarpur village in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh, on Thursday evening.
Harza had apparently urged him to reconsider his plans but he didn't listen to her, causing heated exchanges in words.
She found the only way to stop his plans was to castrate him and later confessed to the crime.
According to India Today, the accused woman attempted to perform his last rites with the help of her relatives but someone in the neighbourhood became suspicious and alerted the police.
Ahmad’s body has been sent for post mortem while a case against Hazra was registered at Bhorakla police station.

Speaking to TOI, Deputy SP of Phugana, said: "The woman has confessed to her crime. Her husband wished to marry yet again. And she wanted to prevent him. Their argument turned into a major scuffle.”
Bhorakalan SHO Jitender Singh also told TOI that Hazra has been booked under section 302 [murder] of IPC and sent to prison. He added: "We are looking into the matter from all legal angles."
A genital-vengence attack like this has been called a Bobbitise in India, named after Lorena Bobbitt who hacked her husband John's penis off with a kitchen knife in 1993.
The term Bobbitise is so widely used that even Indian media use the term to describe these incidents.
