Kishanganj: A young girl's nose was chopped off by her jilted lover, who also made an unsuccessful
attempt to rape her in Bihar's Kishanganj district, police said today.

The incident took place on Sunday when the youth finding the girl alone in her house here tried to rape her.

The girl resisted him and the youth in a fit of rage chopped off her nose with a sharp weapon, the police said.

The youth, who was in a relationship with the girl, was opposed by her family.

He was arrested after the incident and a local court sent him to jail, while the girl is under treatment for her wound.

Her mother had filed a complaint with the police a month ago that the girl was being pressurised by a neighbour to marry the youth.

The police had arrested the neighbour but the youth kept harassing the girl, the police said.
