Bengaluru: Software Engineer loses Rs 70 lakh to online rummy, reunites with family after therapy

A software Engineer who lost Rs 70 lakh to online rummy, prompting his wife and children to abandon him, underwent seven months of counseling, kicked the habit and won back his family after vowing to never go back to his old ways.

Vikas(name changed), 40 was on cloud nine last Tuesday as his family returned to his home in CV Raman Nagar. For Vikas gambling was always a weakness. It started with placing bets on local cricket matches in his village in Tumakuru as a teen. His gambling turned into addiction as he graduated and became a successful software engineer with a top IT firm in Bengaluru.

In 2014 he met his partner who was also a software professional, online. Soon both of them got married. The two had two girls. In mid 2022 Vikas’s 36 year old wife came to know about his rummy addiction and wasn’t concentrating on work and family matters

In October she was shell shocked to find her husband had lost Rs 70 lakh from their savings to online gambling. It was the tipping point for her and she took her children and left for her mother’s place. She took up the matter legally, she approached KR Puram police station with a complaint against her husband’s online rummy addiction and the huge losses due to it

Parihar was seeking to reconcile the differences between the couple, invited the women to discuss the matter. She explained the gravity of the situation and the financial burden and emotional trauma she and her kids were going through. The husband was summoned to Parihar at Malleswaram police station towards the end of October

Initially the husband was indifferent and was irritated by his wife’s complaint to the cops and insisted that she and the kids return home. Her husband broke down and said he wanted to win back his family and wanted to put an end to his addiction said Shetty.  The senior counselor of Parihar conducted numerous counseling sessions with Vikas and even sent him to the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences for tech de-addiction therapy.

The wife was extremely happy about his improvement over the seven months and the husband finally declared himself free of online gambling  addiction.
