Indian Law Student

A 23-year-old law student in Kerala, India, ended 8-years cycle of rape by chopping off the penis of her rapist who is a self-styled godman.

The accused identified as Swami Ganeshananda, or Hari swami as he is also known as, is a member of the Panmana Ashram in Kollam.

According to a police complaint filed by the woman, the accused, identified as Swamy Gangeshananda, a member of the Kollam-based Panmana Ashram, had been raping her at her home for the last eight years.

The woman said he first raped her when she was 16 years old but when he tried again on at her home Friday night, she grabbed a sharp object and chopped off his penis then called the police herself.


Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan reacted to the incident and said that it was brave of her to take such a step. “It’s a courageous and strong act by the woman,” he said.

Following the attack, Gangeshananda was rushed to the Thiruvananthapuram Medical College where an emergency surgery was performed. Hospital officials, however, said that 90% of his penis was cut off and was not in a position to be re-attached. Police sources said the accused said in his statement that he mutilated himself.

“A 54-year-old man from Kollam was admitted at 12.39 am to the hospital on Saturday. His penis had been cut (90%) and there was no way it could be stitched back. Plastic surgeons who are urology experts in the hospital did emergency surgery to stop the blood loss and to enable him to pass urine,” a statement by the hospital said.
