Housewife’s Ear Severed
MALDA, 11 APRIL: An ear was severed of a housewife when she tried to save the life of her brother in law from the attack of the miscreants. Severely injured housewife is now undergoing treatment in the hospital. Such a sensational incident took place at village Jaluabathan under Kaliachak Police Station today.
It is learnt that Jamal Sheikh of the village had borrowed Rs 30000 from his neighbour Pintu Sheikh. Jamal had a habit of gambling and spent all the money in that. Now Pintu was insisting Jamal for the money. After a dilly-dally for few days Jamal finally asked Pintu to meet him today. It is alleged that when Pintu came to the mango orchard, suddenly a group of miscreants led by Jamal pounced on him. He was severely beaten which fell in the notice of Sweety Bibi, sister in law of Pintu. She made a cry and jumped into the squabble to save Pintu. But the miscreants did not spare her either. One of them hit her with a sickle and her ear was almost chopped off. Bleeding Sweety fell on the ground and the miscreants left the place.
Sweety i was taken to Malda District Hospital. Her husband Sintu Sheikh said that a complaint was lodged at Kaliachak Police Station with the names of the miscreants. Sweety was given 22 stitches at her ear.
