There are players who have lost their home, their car and even their fortune complete with the game by not knowing how to lose or being able to keep from gambling when they enter a bad streak. But losing the wife playing, borders on unusual cases of gambling.
The truculent case took place on November 11 in Banka, Bihar state in India, where Binod Kumar Shah, was playing and lost all his money so he turned to his wife Chanda Devi, to deliver it as a form of payment to another man, as reported by the Gulf News newspaper.
After the episode the man returned home late at night to wake her up and tell her that she should go with the man who had won her. “[Shah] told me that the winner would arrive at his house the next morning, so you should prepare to go with him since I lost you in the game,” the angry wife told police.
Shah wanted to force his wife to go with the winner, the police revealed, but instead the woman went to the police station to report her husband “We have registered the case and started the investigation,” police officer Kumar Sunny reported . Authorities expect Devi to offer a new testimony on the case, but so far the woman has not returned.
Police reported that Devi abandoned her husband Binod Kumar Shah and left for her parents’ house. Apparently this is not the first time such incidents have occurred in the state of Bihar, where other similar cases have already been recorded. According to Gulf News, a woman was previously lost two days with another man and another player lost her three-year-old son in the game as well.
Shah is expected to be prosecuted for playing and losing his wife. Although the penalties in India seem to be not drastic enough. Since the man who lost his three-year-old son was hardly imposed as punishment to do 50 abs, because it was not believed that in reality the winner of the child wanted to stay with him.
Although in the case of Shah, according to the testimony of the woman, there was aggression because he hit her by refusing to go with the winner and the penalty could increase. As the case progresses, mandatory questions arise for Bihar state authorities about why the government has not prevented players from betting on their relatives.
