Militants chop off ears, nose, tongue of woman

July 11, 2004 19:50 IST

In a spine-chilling incident, militants spared the life of a woman but chopped off her ears, nose and tongue after abducting her last week from Doda district of Jammu and Kashmir, a police spokesman said in Srinagar today.

Militants kidnapped Mariam Begum from her house in Manoh village in Doda district of Jammu region on July 4 and let her
off last night but only after cutting off her ears, nose and tongue, the spokesman said.

The victim, in a state of trauma, was shifted to a hospital.
