The Uttar Pradesh Police this week arrested a person named Nadeem from Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh for torturing and divorcing his wife citing her support to CM Yogi Adityanath-led BJP state government as the reason. According to the police, the woman complained that she had been subjected to atrocities by her husband and her in-laws as a result of her support for CM Yogi Adityanath and PM Modi.
The Police took the action against the accused based on the complaint filed by the victim on March 3.
Reports mention that the accused husband had already divorced his wife by giving her triple talaq and asked her to leave his house after the verbal divorce. Later he sent her a legal notice of divorce, punishing her for supporting the BJP. “My brother-in-law and sister-in-law started harassing me a few days after my marriage as I supported Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath”, the woman stated in the complaint.
The victim woman also reported the incident to Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath through Twitter after which the President of a Hindu organization from Delhi appealed to the Moradabad Police officials to get justice for the victim woman. “Whenever I was asked to divorce my husband, I would say that Yogi ji is with me. I support him and I had voted for Yogi ji only. My sister-in-law was very angry about this. Due to the same displeasure, a notice of divorce was sent today. I want justice”, the woman stated. Superintendent of Police Akhilesh Bhadoria meanwhile said that an FIR has been filed under sections 376 and 511 of the IPC and a case has been registered.
