Uttar Pradesh: 22-year-old Sayeeda burnt to death by husband and in-laws for complaining against Triple Talaq

As per the deceased victim's daughter, Nafees allegedly thrashed Sayeeda and held her by the hair while his sisters poured kerosene. Nafees' parents lit the match and the family burnt Sayeeda alive.

In a horrific incident, a 22-year-old woman has been was burnt alive by her husband and in-laws in an Uttar Pradesh village after she complained against her husband for giving her triple talaq, reports Times of India.

According to reports, the incident took place on Friday in Shravasti district of Uttar Pradesh when 22-year old Sayeeda was burnt alive by her husband and in-laws in front of her five-year-old daughter just days after she tried to register a complaint against her husband.

Ramzan Khan, the father of the victim has alleged that his son-in-law Nafees (26), who worked in Mumbai had pronounced triple talaq to Sayeeda on the phone. As she was given triple talaq illegally, Sayeeda went to the police only to be told to go back and wait for her husband’s arrival. On August 15, when Nafees came back home, the police had allegedly called the couple to the station and had asked Sayeeda to stay with Nafees.

However, instead of listening to the police’s advice, Nafees again asked his wife to go away, which led to yet another argument when the family decided to kill her. Sayeeda’s 5-year-old daughter, an eyewitness, has reportedly told that her father held her mother by the hair while her two aunts poured kerosene on her and her grandparents lit the matchstick to burn her alive.

“On Friday noon, my father returned after offering Namaz and told the mother to go away since he had given her talaq, resulting in a spat. My grandfather Azizullah, grandmother Haseena, and aunts Gudiya, Nadira came. Father held my mother by her my aunts Nadira and Gudiya poured kerosene and grandfather Azizullah and grandmother Haseena lit a match,” Sayeeda’s daughter Fatima told the police as per Times of India.

Sayeeda’s body has been sent for post-mortem while police have lodged a case of dowry harassment and murder against the husband and his family. No arrests have been made yet.

Shravasti SP Ashish Shrivastava has reportedly informed that they will probe into why the cops did not register a case the first time when the victim approached them on August 6.

It is notable here that the barbaric practice of abandoning a wife by instant Triple Talaq has been rendered a criminal offence as per law.
