Amid the government making efforts to get the Parliament nod for the Triple Talaq Bill, a man allegedly divorced his wife through ‘triple talaq’ and threw her out of the house after a heated argument broke out between them when she asked for money to buy vegetables in Greater Noida.
According to DNA, a woman from Naziabadi in Greater Noida's Dadri Kotwali became the latest victim of 'instant divorce' after she asked her husband for Rs 30 to buy groceries. The husband said 'talaq' thrice, bringing an end to their marriage. He also thrashed her. Sabir and Zainab, both in their mid-30s, have four children. The couple would frequently have fights and disputes, said an official of the Dadri police station where the matter was reported. The incident took place on June 29 when Sabir got furious after Zainab asked for money to buy vegetables, police said, citing eyewitness accounts of the case.
The woman's father told the leading daily, "Even after I had arranged my daughter's marriage with him, his family kept on asking for more dowry. We used to meet at their house if such a situation arose after which he would apologise." The woman was at her parents' house for some time. On June 28, she returned home to Sabir, who was angry over her frequent visits to her parents. The next day the couple had a heated argument over money and the husband yelled 'talaq' thrice at her. Soon Zainab's parents arrived at the couple's residence and tried to resolve the matter but to no avail. They later approached the police and a case was registered against Sabir on allegations of domestic violence and others, he said.
Sabir and his family members have been booked under various sections of the IPC, including 498A (Husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty).
