Melbourne, Nov 15 (ANI): A charge of torture has been laid against a South Australian man, who allegedly cut off his partner's tongue and sliced the sides of her mouth.
Mohammed Tasleem Tahir, 21,who appeared in Southport Magistrate's Court on the Gold Coast, faces charges of torture, committing acts intended to maim and disfigure, and causing grievous bodily harm over the weekend attack in Surfers Paradise, reports News.com.au.
Court documents revealed that the victim, Catherine Cameron, moved to the Gold Coast six months ago, leaving behind her de facto partner Tahir in South Australia.
Cameron, 20, was rushed to the hospital in the early hours of Saturday morning with a 4-cm slash to the right side of her mouth and a 2-cm slash to the left, which exposed her mouth cavity.
She also had her tongue cut in half and suffered a fractured eye socket, which will need a metal plate to be inserted. (ANI)
