A teenaged girl and three members of her family have been granted bail by a Pakistani court after she was charged with mutilating the genitals of a man who jilted her,according to a media report today.

The court in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi granted interim bail to the girl,her two brothers and her father and called them for confirmation of the bail on May 5.

According to 19-year-old girl’s lawyer Irshad Ali Sher,she had been dating a 24-year-old man and they were allowed to visit each other but this stopped when the man decided to marry another woman.

The girl claimed the man had visited her even after his nikaah or marriage and tried to persuade her to sleep with him but she refused.

The girl,who was afflicted by polio,felt she was being used,Sher told The Express Tribune.

When the man insisted on meeting her,the girl “felt threatened and used the knife in self-defence”,her lawyer said.

The girl’s father found the man bleeding on the floor of their home and called an ambulance to take him to hospital.

However,the man’s lawyer,Riaz Ahmed Bhatti,dismissed the girl’s version of events and said the man broke up with her because he suspected she was cheating on him.

“The girl’s brothers and father held his arms and legs while she cut off his genitals. They thought he might die,which is why they took him to Jinnah hospital,” Bhatti said.

The girl’s family registered an FIR for attempted rape but could not prove anything medically,said Bhatti.

The man was “alive,but not really. This is bigger than murder,” he added.

A second FIR was registered against the girls’ family at Sharafi Goth police station and bail was later set at Rs 50,000 each.

The man’s cousin said surgery had been performed on him and doctors were “hopeful that everything would return to normal”.

In order to reverse the damage,the man would have to undergo further surgery for an implant but this is an expensive procedure and the family could not afford it,the cousin said.
