Indian alcoholic ‘throws acid on wife when she refuses to let his friends gang-rape her again’ to pay off gambling debt

A Indian man threw acid at his wife when she refused go to his friends who had been gang-raping her as compensation for her husband’s gambling debts, police claim.

The alleged abuse occurred last Saturday night (local time) in the Bhagalpur district in India’s northeastern state of Bihar, the Times Of India reported.

Although alcohol is banned in Bihar, police say the man is an alcoholic and gambling addict who bet his wife when he ran out of money in late October.

On October 28, the woman was locked in a room after her husband “lost” her while gambling and was gang-raped by his friends.

The New India Express reported that the agreement was she would be available to them for a month, but after several rounds of nightmarish assault, the 30-year-old simply refused.

When the 36-year-old husband attempted to send his wife to them again, she refused to go, and the man threw acid at her.

However, the Times of India reports that she managed to escape and made her way to her parents’ house in a nearby village.

She was taken to a police station by a social activist the next day.

In giving an account of events to the police, the woman revealed the man had been abusive over many years.
