In a shocking incident, a 28-year-old married woman cut off her tongue and 'offered' it to Lord Shiva in Chhattisgarh's Korba district today, police said.

The incident took place this morning at the Shiva temple in Nunera village under Pali development block, located around 60 kms away from Korba district headquarters, a local police official said.

"Seema Bai Gond, wife of Firtu Ram Gond, chopped her tongue with a knife in front of the Shivalinga after offering prayers," he said.
