    Here is the full news

    MALDA: In an extraordinary near-rerun of the Mahabharata, a gambler staked his 18-year-old daughter — as

    Yudhisthir did with wife Draupadi in
    the epic — after losing everything he had in a game of cards.

    The incident occurred in Satgharia village under English bazar police station on Wednesday. Locals said Ismail, who is in his late 30s, lost all his money to Mustafa Sheik from the neighbouring village of Sultanpur.

    A desperate Ismail said he would continue playing and staked his daughter. As luck would have it, Mustafa beat him again and walked away with the protesting girl, a class XI student.

    Witnesses informed the village and the panchayat and a group of people went to Sultanpur, the next day to bring the girl home.

    On hearing the story, Ismail’s angry father, Naimuddin, threw him out of the house. Ismail’s wife said she was worried about her daughter’s future. Malda police said they were investigating the incident.

    Panchayat member Saidur Rahaman said Ismail was “a known gambler...But this time he crossed all limits.” Hooch addiction and gambling have long been a problem in villages in the area.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
