A woman allegedly bit off her husband's right ear in a fit of rage in the Sultanpuri area of outer district here, police said on Sunday. The 45-year-old victim informed the authorities that the bite had severed the top part of his right ear, necessitating surgery. The victim filed a complaint against his wife after treatment.

"I went to throw garbage outside my house around 9.20 am on November 20. I asked my wife to clean the house. Soon after I returned home, my wife started fighting with me over an unknown issue," the complainant told the police.
He further said to the police that in order for his wife to live apart from the kids, she wanted him to sell the house and give her a portion of the proceeds. "A verbal altercation broke out as I attempted to explain things to her. Even so, I pushed her away when she attempted to strike me. She grabbed me by the back as I was leaving the home, and in her wrath, she bit my right ear so hard that the top part of my ear was severed," the victim informed the police.
