In what is being seen as a case of immense torture meted out to a woman, a man pronounced triple talaq to the wife on phone but then also kept her confined.
The incident is of Bareily in Uttar Pradesh where the allegation is that the woman was kept allegedly locked up for a month without food and water and died eventually.
She died while under medical treatment.
The woman has been identified as Razia and she also has a six-year-old child.
The woman’s sister made the grave allegations on the Razia’s husband.
Meanwhile, a local NGO also intervened in the matter and found out that the husband had meted out similar treatment to his first wife as well.
The Supreme Court in August last year had struck down triple talaq, calling the practice unconstitutional.>
