An Indian man was recently left unable to speak after his enraged eight-month pregnant wife bit off his tongue when he tried kissing her during an argument.
If you thought a French kiss was the best way appease a woman’s wrath during a fight, this story may make you think twice the next time you want to use to end an argument.
A 22-year-old man from Delhi, India, had to be rushed to the hospital and treated for heavy bleeding after his wife bit off his tongue.
The woman was subsequently arrested and she told police that she was unhappy with her married life as well as her husband’s unattractive looks, so she couldn’t control her rage anymore.
“They had been fighting for the past one year,” the victim’s mother recently told reporters. “She used to call him dog, slap him and hit him with shoes.”
The bizarre incident took place on Saturday, at the couple’s home. The two had been married for two years, during which time they quarreled often, pretty much over everything, and on Saturday evening, after the man – identified as Karan – returned home they were at it again.
After some time, the man got tired of fighting and tried to calm her down with a kiss. She appeared willing to make up, but then suddenly bit into his tongue, tearing part of it.
It’s not clear who called the police, as the young man is still unable to speak due to his injury. In fact, he had to give the police a written statement. He remains under medical observation at Safdarjung Hospital and may undergo reconstructive surgery to be able to speak again.
As for the eight-month pregnant woman, she remains in police custody and stands accused of “causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means”.
