A doctor said on Thursday that a Vietnamese man is recovering from a penis reattachment operation after the husband of his mistress allegedly sliced off his genitalia.
Dr Nguyen Van-Dong of Bac Giang General Hospital said in Hanoi that the patient’s condition is stable, but it will take some days to learn if the function returns to the victim’s genitals.
He added that adding it took half a day to reattach the penis.
A media report stated that the suspect, 29-year-old Nguyen Van-Huan from Bac Giang Province, began stalking his wife after he suspected that she was having an affair.
It said that he allegedly caught her with an unnamed 32-year-old man at a hotel where he allegedly chopped off the man’s penis.
The report noted that the penis was found two hours later 200 metres away from the hotel after the victim’s relatives convinced Huan to reveal its location.
It said that Huan is now being investigated on charges of “deliberately inflicting injuries’’. (dpa/NAN)
