In a bizarre incident, a 30-year-old woman has been assaulted and given triple talaq by her husband on Saturday after she asked for Rs.30 from him to buy vegetables.
According to the reports, the accused, identified as Sabir also hit his 30-year-old wife Zainab with a screwdriver. The couple lived in Nai Abadi Mohalla in Dadri with their three daughters and a son. The victim has lodged a complaint against her husband and in-laws alleging that they subjected her to domestic violence.
The victim’s father said his daughter had a difficult relationship with her husband since she got married. He further accused Sabir of previously thrashing Zainab while hitting her with a stick on her head. The father also accused Zainab’s in-laws of misbehaving with her.
“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. My husband divorced me by triple talaq, spat on my face and ousted me from the house,” alleged Zainab. Reports state that Zainab was brutally thrashed and she had fallen unconscious when the neighbours found her. The thrashing allegedly started after Zainab asked Shabir for Rs 30 for buying vegetables.
An FIR has been registered at Dadri police station against Sabir, his mother Najjo and his sister Shama under 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) of the Indian Penal Code.
“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,” said Niraj Malik, SHO, Dadri.
