Man booked for triple talaq in Hazaribag | Ranchi News


Hazaribag: Bishnugarh police in Hazaribag district registered a case against a man for giving triple talaq to his wife of five years.
Azam Ansari, son of Nasirul Ansari of village Hesla under Bagodar police station of Giridih district, was booked on Wednesday, officer in-charge of Bishnugarh police station Jaglal Munda informed on Thursday.
He said the case was filed based on a complaint by a woman identified as Shakila Khatun. He said, “Shakila belongs to Hethley Murgawan village under Bishnugarh police station. She married Azam about five years ago and had three children. But she alleged that ever since she was married, her husband and in-laws were torturing her for dowry. She was even kept without food for days.”
On Wednesday, Azam, while bringing her to her native place at Hethley Murgawan village, allegedly threw her out of the running vehicle pronouncing triple talaq, she claimed. The victim also alleged that her husband took the children with him.
The OC said, “After all efforts of reconciliation failed, the father of the victim lodged an FIR against Azam. Cases were also filed against Azam’s father, Nasirul Ansari, mother and other relatives who tortured her.”
Munda said since triple talaq is banned in India, it is now a serious offence. “If any anybody says triple talaq through any means, it is a cognizable offence. The police have registered a case under triple talaq act, dowry act and various sections of the IPC,” he said.
Bishnugarh SDPO circle Anuj Oraon said he is going through the FIR and necessary action will be taken.
