The incident took place last evening when 35-year-old Sangita had a fight with her husband over his drinking habit. After a heated exchange, an infuriated Rajesh Kumar chopped off his wife's nose, the police said.
Sangita was taken to a hospital later, where her condition is said to be stable.
More details are awaited.
