Dubai: In another gory incident of violence against women, a husband has reportedly cut off his ex-wife's tongue days after divorcing her.

Police have registered a case against the husband who is at large. He has been accused of attempting murder.

The incident was reported in Pindi Bhattian, a small town located some 110km from Lahore, Punjab.

According to police, the suspect, identified as Jahangir, had divorced his wife, Nasreen, a few days ago.

Police added, the suspect went over to his in-laws house and cut off former wife Nasreen’s tongue with a pair of scissors, Geo TV reported.

Nasreen was rushed to the hospital while the husband ran off.

The incident comes quick on the heels of another case of domestic violence; last week, police arrested a husband for beating and shaving off his wife’s head because she refused to dance for his friends in Lahore.
