Kabul – An Afghan woman cut off her father-in-law’s penis with a knife after he tried to have sex with her, a doctor in eastern Afghanistan’s Ghazni province said Saturday.

“One day when the husband was away from home he attempted to have sex with his daughter-in-law and she cut off his penis with a knife,” the doctor from a private hospital in Ghazni said on condition of anonymity.

The man went for treatment at the private hospital but was sent on to the capital Kabul for specialist treatment, he added. The incident took place two weeks ago but has only just come to light.

According to figures in an Oxfam report in October, 87% of Afghan women report having experienced physical, sexual or psychological violence or forced marriage.
