In what could be termed as a shocking incident, a man in Uttar Pradesh's Jaunpur bet his wife after running out of money in gambling and allegedly allowed a friend and relative to gang-rape her after losing his stake. According to news agency IANS, the police initially refused to file a case based on the woman's complaint, and only registered an FIR after she approached a court.
The woman, who lives in the Zafarabad police station area, claimed that her husband was an alcoholic and had put her on stake while gambling.
Reports suggest her husband's friend Arun and relative Anil often used to visit their house to drink alcohol and gamble. The man allowed the two gang-rape his wife after he lost to them. After the incident, the woman went to her maternal uncle's house. Her husband followed her there and asked to be forgiven, saying he had made a mistake.
After he apologised, the woman went back with her husband in his car. On their way back, her husband stopped the car and allowed his friends to gang-rape her once again, she has alleged.
