Kamlesh said: ‘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 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,’ she said.

On September 14, Kamlesh was cooking dinner when Sanjeev started shouting and demanding money again.

She said that suddenly, from behind, her in-laws grabbed her and held her down while her husband allegedly chopped off her nose.

‘They all grabbed me tightly. I could not move.

'And then out of nowhere I saw a knife and he chopped off my nose,’ Kamlesh recalled.

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’.

Kamlesh quickly called her parents who lived nearby and they rushed her to the nearest medical centre.
