IPOH: A 34-year-old man, believed to be mentally deranged, cut his penis, burnt and ate it at his house in Kampung Baru in Kampung Koh, Sitiawan yesterday.
A police spokesman said the man, believed to have taken hallucinatory pills before the incident, could have done it after hearing a voice asking him to do so.
He said the man woke up at about 1am upon hearing the voice asking him to cut his penis, burn and eat it.
He then wrapped his penis in a piece of cloth, burnt and ate it, he said.
He said the man realised something was wrong when he saw blood flowing profusely from his severed private part.
The man then woke his mother up and related the incident to her.
He was rushed to the Manjung Hospital but was transferred to the Ipoh Hospital for further treatment.
The man is said to be in stable condition, but is facing problems urinating as the urinary tract has been severed, the spokesman said.
The man's mother, when met at her house, said her son had been mentally disturbed since returning from a drug rehabilitation centre recently.
My son took hallucinatory pills before the incident. He once tried to commit suicide by using a pair of scissors to stab his head but was saved.
He also often keeps to himself in his room, she said. Bernama
