Man "Bets" Wife On Cricket Match & Loses

Tags: cricket, Indian Premier League, Ravinder Singh.
Posted on 07 June 2016 by "T".

Kanpur, India - A man bizarrely put his wife at stake in a gambling game concerning the Indian Premier League (IPL) and lost her. Ravinder Singh, resident of Govindnagar, Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, who was reported to have recently lost all his money in the share markets, opted to put his wife Jasmeet Kaur, as leverage for a precarious bet on an Indian Premier League match.

Kaur only found out what happened after her husband's gambling rivals started harassing her at the boutique she owns and even at her home.

Kaur sought help from the police about the harassment and she also filed a complaint against her husband, which prompted the police to investigate the case.

According to Times of India, the authorities must first find Singh who reportedly fled right after he lost the bet.

Govindnagar Ajai Prakash Srivastava of the local police said, "The case is really shocking. We are now looking into the allegations made by her and investigations are on to understand the exact circumstances behind the crime."

The couple was married in 2011, which was 5 years ago. However, the marriage had been difficult starting from day one, says the wife.

Police said, "On the very first day of marriage, her husband, who was into share trading, asked her to hand over to him her jewellery and other valuables. Later, she got to know about his vices of drinking and gambling. 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."

Srivastava added, "The wife said the husband would beat her up every now and then and once he even urged her to bring Rs 7 lakh ($10,442) from her parents."
This news reminds us of what Mirage (from Disney's The Incredibles) said: "Next time you gamble, bet your own life!"

Missing information:
1) What was the odds of the bet?
2) What was the supposed payout?
3) Was he going to be paid in wives or money?
4) If payout was in money then how did the bookmaker assess the bet value?

These are the things i need to know.
And finally to say he lost is an exaggeration. He is probably better off now and so is she.

That is what one could call a risk free bet.

I wonder.... Given all of the frivolity surrounding this matter... Exactly what value or price was levied on the head of the wife..... I am sure that Jasmeet.... And no doubt her father would have liked to have seen the value quite high.... But then again, I wonder what her family think of this ...and what happened to her now?

G'day mates

Well I for one feel really bad for this poor women.
She is in India were many still view women as mere property.
I am willing to have her come and serve me as my personal wife next Smile
Provided of course her family is going to provide my with a generous dowry Blink

The Dowry system (Hindi: दहेज, Dahēj) refers to the durable goods, cash, and real or movable property that the bride's family gives to the bridegroom, his parents, or his relatives as a condition of the marriage.

I like cash, gold, and or pure silver.

I am just kidding people. I really do feel bad for this women.

I would bet my other half if I could.

I am thinking a bet of Iceland to win the euros might be enough for me to finally get rid of him!
 RoninHarper07/06/2016 17:09:16 GMT
G'day IceQueenAce

I would be willing to take your other half provided that his dowry is large enough Blink
I will put him to work on the street corner if he is attractive enough.

Pimpin' ain't easy LOL

Just kidding ICQ hope you are having a great day.

Ronin Cool

Super safe bet for you to get rid would be either Northern Ireland to win the Euros or Scotland to qualify for any major tournament in the next 20years! I'm Scottish so I'm allowed to make fun of my national team...

ha ha ha interesting news and funny .. in India of course is possible every stupid idea works ... this is India and it is possible to do anything interesting .. and if he put his wife on the rate of 1.5 to win? give him his wife back and disabled women with a body half or dwarf?
 doubletop77708/06/2016 08:11:10 GMT
This guy sounds like a real keeper (not)!!! These guys bet huge amounts on the Indian Premier League but i never thought this would happen. She is better off without him and good riddance i say
 pochui08/06/2016 10:41:17 GMT
great bet dude... i would consider taking this on, only if his wife was good looking and had nice melons, i would offer my stinky guinea pig if i lost the bet plus a master-course in shares trading by the one and only stock guru pochui. sure guinea pig would be a bigger attraction, but what the hell...

It is shocking - but a relief that the lady was not molested or gang raped. The culprit must be sent to jail and the lady be given an honorable separation - this guy is a complete failure and must be separated from the lady. If not done, this will happen again and again.
 Gerimantas11/02/2017 13:03:44 GMT
I agree with you indianace I also find this is a horrible situation and this man done a very bad thing, there are situations when wife is not the best and man and his wife have problems, but he still has no right to place a her as part of the bet.
