Lucknow: In a shocking incident, a five-year-old boy's penis was chopped off for urinating in the field of a villager in Uttar Pradesh, police said Wednesday.

The ghastly incident took place in Korali village of Pratapgarh late Tuesday. Police said Ritesh, son of a brick kiln labourer Sheshram, wandered into a field and was caught urinating.

The field owner not only thrashed him but also chopped off his penis. The profusely bleeding boy somehow reached home and raised an alarm.

He has since been rushed to Allahabad where he is undergoing medical treatment.
