“I want to return the money I have borrowed from various persons. Therefore, I’m selling my wife for Rs. 1 lakh. Anybody interested in buying her can contact me on my mobile number,” he wrote in the post.

She had got married to the accused about three years back. After the marriage, the couple settled in Indore where he borrowed money from some people and was unable to return it.
