After Losing Bet, Man Offers His Wife as Payment

An Indian man is being investigated for gambling his wife away before assaulting her when she refused to go with the winner.

The incident took place in the district of Banka in the north-eastern Indian state of Bihar when Binod Kumar Shah lost a bet who could not afford to pay, according to local media. . .

When he returned home later that evening, he woke up his wife and told her to pack her bags because he lost the bet and the winner was arriving in the morning to collect his ‘winnings’.

Devi told local media: ‘My husband told me the winner was coming to the house in the morning so I should get ready to leave with him because he lost the bet.’

That morning, Shah allegedly assaulted Devi when she refused to go with the winner. (Read more from “After Losing Bet, Man Offers His Wife as Payment” HERE)
