After the central government criminalized the triple talaq, a case has been registered against a man in Rajasthan’s Barmer.
The woman complainant alleges that she was given ‘triple talaq’ by her husband.
In a complaint filed on Wednesday, the woman said her husband and in-laws used to torture her for dowry.
She alleged that her husband pronounced ‘talaq’ (divorce) over phone on September 15.
A case was registered under relevant sections of Indian Penal Code and the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Ordinance, 2018 against the man, police said.
The complainant alleged that the police initially refused to register the case and called the couple to the police station for settlement.
Police however denies that such an incident took place.
