Bangalore, July 04: A Drunkard bit off his wife’s ear lobe and ate it even as she screamed in pain in Karnataka.
The incident, which took place on Tuesday night, disfigured the victim, Roopa ( 34), who approached the doctors for a plastic surgery.
According to the police, Roopa’s husband Nagaraj Reddy came home at around 10 pm in an intoxicated state.
“ They fought after dinner leading to the altercation. Subsequently, Roopa went off to sleep,” the police said.
Around midnight, Roopa felt an excruciating pain in her left ear. To her horror, her husband was biting her ear off. Though she started screaming for help, Nagaraj did not let go off her. Her ear lobe came off.
“ My ear lobe, except the part holding the ear ring was torn off. He chewed it in front of me. It was disgusting,” Roopa reportedly told the police.
Hearing her screams, the neighbours rushed to her aid.
Roopa was immediately taken to the nearest hospital for treatment.
The police have booked a case against Nagaraj.
