Mumbai: In a shocking incident that saw day light after a 22 year old woman from Damoh district in Madhya Pradesh gathered courage to lodge a complaint with the Police against her husband, who was drinking her blood from the past three years.
Deepa, who was married in 2007 to Mahesh Ahirwar, an agricultural labour from Shikarpura village, had to keep tight-lipped for over three years as her husband threatened her of terrible consequences if she revealed about his blood drinking habit to anyone.
"He used to take a syringe and draw blood from my arms. He would then empty it in a glass and drink it. For three years he did this on a regular basis, threatening me of dire consequences if I revealed this to anyone," a daily quoted Deepa as saying.
Mahesh started drinking his wife’s blood a few months post his wedding and did not even spare Deepa when she was pregnant. He believed that he would become stronger if he kept drinking Deepa’s blood.
It was only after delivering her son that Deepa decided to make protest against his sadist nature.
Her health started deteriorating for she started feeling nausea after repeated blood removal. She was also beaten up whenever she showed resistance.
Deepa quietly ran to her parents’ house along with her infant to complain about her husband.
Her father then took her to the Patera police station to lodge a complaint. But the police refused to register a case saying it was not under their jurisdiction.
So they moved to Hindoriya police station (the area where her husband lived).
But even Hindoriya refused to register a case against Mahesh, who was by then absconding. However, when the local residents of Shikarpura learnt of Mahesh’s gross habit, they decided to take up the cause.
Due to their efforts, an FIR has been lodged at the Hindoriya police station stating that Deepa was physically tormented by her husband.
