The police have booked a man for divorcing his wife by triple talaq following a heated argument over ₹30 in Greater Noida’s Dadri. According to a report in The Hindustan Times, 30-year-old Zainab alleged that her husband allegedly lost his cool, thrashed her and then divorced her when she asked him for ₹30 to buy vegetables.
The incident took place on June 29. ‘The complainant lived with her husband Sabir (35) in Nai Abadi Mohalla in Dadri with their three daughters and a son. In her complaint, she has alleged she was subjected to domestic violence by her husband and in-laws,’ the report added.
“On Saturday evening, my husband Sabir, brother in-laws Zakir and Idris, sister in-law Sama and mother-in-law Najjo thrashed me. They also gave me electric shocks with a wire,” she alleged. “My husband divorced me by triple talaq, spat on my face and ousted me from the house,” the report quoted the woman as saying.
“We reached there and found that her in-laws had thrashed her. We took her to a local hospital for treatment and then filed a police complaint,” Zainab’s brother Rashid told the newspaper.
According to a report in News18, the victim also said that she was attacked by a screwdriver by her husband.
A case has been registered against Sabir and four of his family members under IPC sections 498-A (husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty), 504 (intentional insult) and 506 (criminal intimidation). “We have arrested Sabir and produced him before Dadri city magistrate. He was released on bail on June 30. The other family members named as accused are absconding,” the office said.
