Sand Mafia Chops Off Woman’s Hand


Bengaluru: In a gruesome incident, three members of a sand mafia chopped off the hand of a housewife in Bengaluru in a case of mistaken identity. All the three accused are now absconding and the cops, who are facing criticism for poor policing, have launched an extensive search operation to nab the accused.

The victim, Mangala Gowri, is now undergoing treatment at a private hospital. Though the police have surgically joined her severed left hand, which was chopped off, the victim needs to wait for a week to ascertain whether she can regain movement.

The incident has shocked the IT Capital of the nation because the rowdies dared to barge into the house of the victim and slashed her family members with swords. The incident took place on Thursday evening when her husband was not at home.
