Sitapur: A woman’s nose was allegedly cut off by her in-laws after she refused to withdraw the case of triple talaq.
“We got a complaint in which a man gave triple talaq over the phone. Both families have been called and a counselling attempt was made. When the matter was not solved, we have filed a case under the relevant section of the triple talaq act. The woman was beaten up and was admitted to the hospital. She sustained injuries on her nose,” police said.
“They (woman’s in-laws) had a sharp weapon and used it to cut nose. They also hit me with stone,” woman’s brother-in-law said.
Parliament had recently passed Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019 that criminalises instant ‘ triple talaq’.
