Moradabad: Man gives triple talaq to wife after dowry harassment, hands over her to brother and brother-in-law saying he will get Halala done

In the Moradabad district of Uttar Pradesh, a case of alleged triple talaq and dowry harassment has come to the fore. The victim has alleged that she was being harassed dowry by her husband’s family. She also accused her in-laws’ family of forcing her to have sexual relations with her husband’s brothers adding that they were trying to push her into prostitution.

The matter pertains to the Katghar police station precinct in Moradabad. The Karula area resident victim filed a complaint against her husband and his family. On her complaint, the police registered an FIR on Sunday, 22nd October.

According to the complaint, the victim married a youth from Sambhal in February last year. Shortly after the victim’s marriage, her husband, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law began harassing her for dowry. Her brother-in-law and husband’s brother-in-law were both keeping a lecherous eye on her. When the victim informed her mother-in-law about it, she threatened her to be silent. She told the victim, “If you want to live here, you will have to ‘satisfy’ everyone.”

Meanwhile, the victim’s husband recorded her obscene videos which he used to blackmail the victim. The victim further claimed that due to persistent torture, she gave birth to a premature baby who soon after died. On August 30 this year, the victim’s in-laws ousted her from their home after brutally assaulting her, the victim said.

After getting expelled from her husband’s house, the victim returned to her parents. However, on 10th September, the victim’s husband arrived at her house along with ten people to take her back and caused a ruckus when the victim refused to return with him. The victim alleged that her husband tried to strangulate her using a scarf (Dupatta) and later gave triple talaq.

Notably, triple talaq is a type of divorce performed in Islam in which a Muslim man could legally divorce his wife by saying talaq (the Arabic word for divorce) three times. The practice, however, was prohibited by the Modi government in 2019.

The victim woman alleged that during the incident, her brother-in-law and her sister-in-law’s husband were also present there. Meanwhile, the victim’s husband told the two, “You both also satisfy your desire, will get her Halala done.” Subsequently, the two allegedly tried to tear the victim’s clothes who somehow managed to escape. Meanwhile, the police have registered a case and an investigation into the matter is underway.
