In a shocking case, a Delhi man chopped off his genitals after he imagined being accused of having sex with his mom and sister. The 35-year-old man is said to be suffering from Schizophrenia and thought that he heard his neighbours gossiping about him having sexual relationships with his family. In a fit of anger, the man chopped off his genitals and was found unconscious in a pool of blood with his private parts lying on the floor next to him. The family took him to the nearby hospital where he was diagnosed with Schizophrenia. The family always thought that the man was mentally challenged, but the doctors revealed that the voices he heard that caused this gruesome incident was actually a work of fiction. Homeless man’s private parts set on fire by drunken miscreants in Chennai!

The man was taken to the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in Delhi and required medical attention. The man lived with his family and never got married. His father was at work when the incident occurred, and his mother and sister were home. They heard a scream from the man’s room and found him laying unconscious. The person has been suffering from Schizophrenia from the past 15 years. The doctors said that the case of Schizophrenia has been rising and this extreme act was mainly because the mental illness was not detected in time. The man requires special attention and medicines for his safe keeping.

Rajiv Mehta, the consultant psychiatrist at the hospital, spoke to India Today and said “A team of doctors from the urology department first tried to fix the private parts. However, it could not be done as a lot of time had elapsed. Rehan (name changed) needs proper medication as only that can treat his problem. He often hears people saying bad things about him, especially about him having sexual relations with his mother and sister.”

The man will be undergoing lifelong treatment for schizophrenia and will be under medication. The hospital authorities said that this is not the first case of patients hurting their private parts and self-harming. The increased mutilation and violence on the sexual parts is mainly being blamed on the easy accessibility of porn and the sexual talks that are heard by the patients suffering from the disease. Schizophrenia is a severe mental disorder in which people interpret reality abnormally. It may result in some combination of hallucinations, delusions, and extremely disordered thinking and behaviour that impairs daily functioning, and can be disabling.
