Maid severed sponsor's penis after rape, court told

Maid used straight razor to cut off 77-year-old employer's penis after being raped several times and threatened with being thrown out of his house, court told.

DUBAI // A maid cut off her 77-year-old sponsor's penis with a straight razor because he had raped her, a court heard this morning.

JN, 26, from Bangladesh, sobbed in the Criminal Court of First Instance today and declined to enter a plea to the charge of causing permanent disability.

In records, she testified that on April 9, her sponsor, MM, raped her in her room after threatening to throw her out of the house if she did not obey his sexual demands. She said he raped her again the next day.

About 11am on April 11, while she was in her room, she said MM asked her to pleasure him.

"I noticed a shaving blade on the cupboard next to the bed," JN told prosecutors.

She said she started pleasuring him and as he was distracted, she grabbed the blade and cut off his penis. She threw it in the rubbish bin, she said.

MM began screaming and JN ran to another room and hid, records show.

MM's son KM, 19, told prosecutors that he woke up to his father's screams. When he saw MM covered in blood, he called police.

"My father was sitting in a chair opposite my room bleeding severely," KM said.

KM said he then saw JN trying to escape, so he stopped her. Police arrived soon afterward and MM was taken by ambulance to Rashid Hospital.

A medical report said that the organ was reattached, but that MM would suffer permanent disability.

"It was difficult to determine if the organ's ability to function properly is still available, as the victim said he did not have sex for two years," said the forensics doctor in prosecution records.

The report also said tests could not confirm whether JN was raped.

The case was adjourned until September 15 so a Bangladeshi translator could be provided.
