A man from Govindnagar area of Kanpur district of Uttar Pradesh put his wife in an Indian Premier League (IPL) betting game and lost her. The matter came to light after Ravinder Singh’s fellow gamblers began harassing his wife Jasmeet Kaur, prompting her to approach the local police with the help of social activists.
The police said that after having lost his all money at the share markets, the man put up his wife as a stake in IPL betting and lost her too.
Later, she got to know about his vices of drinking and gambling with 99 online. Over the years, he either sold or lost in gambling all the valuables of their household. He was also planning to sell the house when this IPL gambling fiasco happened.
