Want to sell my wife for Rs 1 lakh: Debt-ridden man's FB post


In a bizarre incident, a 30-year-old man from the neighbouring Khargone district allegedly posted a 'status update' on social networking site Facebook seeking to sell his wife for Rs 1 lakh, in order to clear his debts.

The woman has lodged a police complaint over the objectionable post, following which a case has been registered against her husband Dilip Mali under IPC section 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman), an official at the Aerodrome police station said today.

A search is on to nab him, he said.

In his Facebook post in Hindi, the man has also uploaded a photo of his wife and two-year-old daughter and mentioned his mobile number for "interested" people to "contact me".
