A doctor, who has been accused of removing the genitals of his patient, has defended the operation by stating that he had informed the patient about the procedure and had thought that the woman had understood what the surgery would involve. The victim in the case is a 58-year-old woman whose labia showed the presence of pre-cancerous cells and was removed in 2002.
The defendant in the case is a doctor identified as GSR. The prosecution has leveled charges of causing bodily harm and genital mutilation against the accused in the case.
While narrating the incident to the judge, the woman stated that after the procedure, when she regained consciousness, she was in severe pain and found out that her clitoris had been removed. Apart from the woman in the case stating that she had not been informed regarding the procedure, the witnesses for the prosecution have also informed the court that the step taken by the doctor was an extreme precautionary measure, which has left the victim marred for life.
In defense, the accused stated that he had presented a diagram to the patient and had properly explained in the diagram about what would be removed from her body. However, he did not mention, whether her clitoris would be removed as well.
