An Indian man cut off his genitals in an attempt to join the country's eunuchs and increase his begging income.

The man had been pleading for money on the Hindu festival of Diwali before going home and mutilating himself in Rajasthan state.

The 22-year-old had been befriended by eunuchs and used to go begging with them at events like childbirths, marriages and festivals.
