Man uses his wife as stake during bet in India

A man was reported to the police in India by his wife after using it as a stake during a betting activity with friends.

The man identified as Binod Kumar Shah was accused of assaulting his wife for refusing to go with the winner.

The Daily Mail reports that the incident occurred in Banka, in the state of Bihar, in north-eastern India.

Shah came home, he woke up his wife, Chanda Devi, and told him to pack up because he lost the bet and the winner arrived in the morning to collect his “winnings”.

The husband would have assaulted Devi for not having fulfilled his order.

“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”, Devi told local media.

The wife then went to the police station to report the incident.

Reacting, a police spokesperson said:

“We have registered the complaint and have started the investigation”.

The officer, however, disclosed that Devi has not returned to provide further information and already left the area to live with her parents.
