Man cuts off wife’s nose, runs away with it over dowry

A man in India has left his wife distraught after he cut off her nose and ran away with it because her family couldn’t afford a marriage dowry.

In India brides pay dowry to prospective husbands unlike Nigeria where the reverse is the case. In Indian custom the bride’s family gives either cash, jewellery or land to the groom as a condition of any marriage.

Kamlesh Rathore, 25, from Shahjahanpur, in Uttar Pradesh, northern India, said her husband, Sanjeev Rathore, 27, had been demanding a dowry of Rs 50,000 (£550) ever since they got married over eight years ago Daily Mail reported.

‘He harassed me every day for the dowry. He was constantly demanding Rs 50,000.

‘I repeatedly told him that my father is very poor and he cannot afford such an amount but he did not listen and used to threaten me that he’ll chop off my nose.

‘He has beaten me for years.

‘He’s used belts, slippers, sticks and has always tortured me.

‘He used to accuse me of working as a prostitute and threaten to sell me. He was always drunk.

‘During our eight years of marriage he was very harsh with me,’ Kamlesh was quoted by the paper.

Kamlesh said on September 14, she was cooking dinner when Sanjeev started shouting and demanding money again, adding that suddenly from behind, her in-laws grabbed her and held her down while her husband allegedly chopped off her nose.

Kamlesh, who has a six-year-old daughter, said her husband and in-laws fled as soon as they chopped off her nose.

His last words were: ‘You’ll now be like this forever’.
