UP woman’s nose ‘chopped off’ over triple talaq
A woman here in Uttar Pradesh has alleged that her nose was chopped off by her in-laws after she refused to withdraw a case of triple talaq.
The woman’s husband had given her triple talaq over the phone after which her mother filed a complaint against him, a police official said.
“Both the families were called and a counselling attempt was made. But when the matter was not resolved, we filed the case under the triple talaq act,” the official said.
However, the woman’s in-laws said she had a sharp weapon which she used to cut off her own nose. “She also hit me with a stone,” the woman’s brother-in-law said.
According to the woman’s mother, Sharifun Nisha, her daughter was beaten up by her in-laws.
“I went to the police station to file a triple talaq complaint of my daughter. Her in-laws threatened her after she did not withdraw the case. They beat her up,” she said.
Parliament recently passed the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019, that criminalises instant triple talaq.
