Man's hand chopped off for inquiring about his missing cow
A 35-year-old man's hand was allegedly chopped off by members of a family when he went to their residence to inquire about his missing cow in Raisen, Madhya Pradesh, police said on Monday. The victim, Kallu Sahu, went Saturday evening to the home of Sattu Yadav in Pipalwali village, in search of his missing cow, Sultanpur police station's Assistant Sub-Inspector Malkhan Singh Meena said.
Police arrested Sattu Yadav and his son
Sahu's kin rushed to the spot and freed him from captivity. They later admitted him to the community health center at Sultanganj, from where he was referred to a hospital in Bhopal, Meena said. Police registered a case in connection with the incident and arrested Yadav and his son on Sunday. Search is ongoing for the other three members of the family, he added.
Family members tied Sahu to a tree and attacked him
A simple inquiry about the animal turned into a heated argument when Yadav did not give a satisfactory reply on the matter following which Sahu allegedly abused him, Meena said. The enraged family members of Yadav then tied Sahu to a tree. They attacked him with a sword and chopped off one of his hands and caused severe injuries to the other, he said.
