Husband pawns wife for money to buy drugs

A husband in Sri Lanka pawned his wife to his friend for 90 days to borrow Rs15,000 from him to buy drugs, the ‘Mirror’ newspaper has reported.

But the husband got a shock when his wife, a mother of two, refused to return to him after 90 days. Her ‘new owner’ also refused to let her go.

The husband then approached the Dambulla police station for help to get his wife released.

Since she had always been harassed always by her drug addicted husband, the woman had come to like her ‘new owner’ who was a divorcee.
