BANGALORE: The High Court on Monday directed a lower court to conduct hearing into a case relating to the alleged attempt to murder of a man by his girlfriend.
A dentist, Dr Syeda, had allegedly bobbitised her boyfriend, Dr Mir Arsha Ali Khan, in November 2008, after she came to know that he was already married. According to the police, Dr Syeda invited Dr Khan to her clinic, Miswak Dental Clinic in Koramangala 8th block, when she offered him a sedative-laced soft drink.
After he fell unconscious, she reportedly cut off his genitals, and admitted him to Sagar Hospital.
Dr Syeda, who is now out on bail, had approached a lower court pleading to discharge her from charge of attempt to murder, which was rejected. She then approached the High Court stating that she never wanted to kill him.
