Allahabad: In a gruesome incident, a 45-year old widow allegedly killed a man by smashing his head with a heavy stone before chopping off his genitalia, police said.

The incident took place in Colonelganj police station area where Jyoti (45) killed Jai Prakash (40), an auto rickshaw driver they said, adding she was caught by police
while roaming around, incoherently narrating the entire episode.
On being interrogated, Jyoti told police that her husband had died while she was young and she had no children and few months ago, Prakash befriended her and they started living together.

Relations between the two became strained when Prakash started seeing another woman in the neighbourhood which led to frequent quarrels between the two. The woman apparently lost her balance of mind after committing the crime, they added.
