In a horrifying incident in Uttar Pradesh's Jaunpur, a man addicted to gambling and alcohol, bet his wife after running out of money and allegedly allowed a friend and relative to gang-rape her after losing his stake.
The police initially refused to file a case based on the woman's complaint, and only registered a First Information Report after she approached a court.
Reports said her husband's friend Arun and relative Anil often used to visit their house to drink and gamble. The man let 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.
