Triple talaq over phone persists even after ordinance

October 05, 2018 12:42

The Uttar Pradesh police on Thursday registered a case against a man for allegedly giving triple talaq to his wife over phone over the dowry issue.

This comes weeks after, the Central government passed an ordinance criminalizing triple talaq.

According to the victim's mother, Reshma, her daughter was being harassed by her in-laws. She alleged that her son-in-law, who lives in Saudi Arabia divorced her daughter after she couldn't arrange the dowry.

"My daughter was being mistreated by her in-laws. I brought her to my home and they started demanding her to bring money by threatening of Talaq. Later my son-in-law gave Talaq to my daughter over the phone from Saudi. We are demanding action against this injustice," Reshma said.

The Triple Talaq victim, Noori said, "I have been married for eight months. My mother-in-law beats me and demands to bring a motorcycle and Rs 50,000." The police have registered a case under relevant sections. -- ANI
