In shocking news, a 32-year-old man allegedly given ‘triple talaq’ after his wife asked for Rs 30 for buying vegetables on Saturday. The incident took place in Raoji Market. Zainab (30) alleged that Sabir also smashed her with a screwdriver at the time of the incident, police said.
She was then taken to a nearby local hospital and has been released after treatment, they added.
At the time of incident, Zainab’s mother-in-law Najjo tried to remove her earrings but she rejected to it.
“Zainab refused to give away the jewellery as it was given to her by us. Soon, her parents-in-law started beating her and did not allow any neighbour inside their house at that time,” Zainab’s father Mursaleem said.
He added that Sabir who sells oil containers to mills, had a tensed relationship with his wife ever since their marriage for 9 years now. The couple have four children. “Sabir had hit Zainab in the head with a stick around two years back. Her in-laws used to misbehave with her,” Mursaleem said.
He also said that a few days ago, Zainab was under the weather and so he had brought her to his home. “She stayed with us for five days and on Friday, when she returned to her in-laws in Dadri, Sabir told her that he wanted a divorce,” Mursaleem said.
An FIR has been lodged at Dadri police station against Sabir, Najjo and his sister Shama under IPC sections 498A (husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation).
The family of the woman alleged that the police produced Sabir before a magisterial court from where he was given a challan under Section 151 of CrPC and released on bail. “They should have produced him before the Surajpur court,” Mursaleem added.
The two other accused are yet to be detained. The police added that they would take the matter to the family court.
“We will refer the matter to the family court as there is no official gazette notification on the issue of triple talaq. We are investigating the allegations of triple talaq,” Dadri SHO Neeraj Malik told TOI.
The SC in August 2017 had set aside triple talaq, citing that it was void, illegal and unconstitutional, and against the basic tenets of the Quran.
