Dubai: A Jordanian man in his 20s chopped off the private parts of his 18-month-old nephew over inheritance disputes, local media reported.
The crime took place in Zarqa Governorate, the third-largest governorate in Jordan by population.
According to police reports, the suspect, who is a drug addict with many drug-related cases against him, wanted to take revenge on his sister’s husband for interfering in their family’s inheritance issues.
He is said to have taken the baby from his father’s house to the fourth floor of the building where they reside, brutally beat him, cut off his private parts and ran away.
The child was immediately taken to the hospital where doctors managed to reattach the genitals.
Zarqa police apprehended the culprit within hours of committing the crime and will be referred to public prosecution for legal actions.
