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.
