man loses wife in gambling match


Patna: A man in Bihar allegedly lost his wife in a gamble and then assaulted her when she refused to go with the ‘winner’.

The bizarre incident took place in Banka district of Bihar a few days back but came to light after the victim reported the matter to the police on Tuesday.

According to the complaint, the woman was asleep in her room on Monday night when her husband Binod Kumar Shah woke her up to inform that he had lost her to a villager after gambling and that she would have to go with the winner.

“He (husband) told me the winner would arrive at home the next morning and so you should get ready to go with him since I have lost you in the game,” the woman identified as Chanda Devi reportedly told the police.
