Even as the triple talaq was pronounced unconstitutional, a 26-year-old Muslim man in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra allegedly gave triple talaq to his wife via WhatsApp.

The man has been identified as Javed Saber Pathan, a resident of Khandala village in Vaijapur taluka in the district.

But on September 23, Javed sent a triple talaq message on her WhatsApp, he added.
Shabana Nisar lodged a complaint against him with Vaijapur police station on Wednesday following which a case was registered.
