Delhi Man Arrested For Divorcing Wife Through "Triple Talaq"

NEW DELHI: 

A man was arrested in Delhi for divorcing his wife after pronouncing the word “talaq” thrice, police said on Saturday.

The arrest was made after a complaint was lodged in north Delhi’s Bara Hindu Rao police station on Friday.

The 29-year-old woman got married to Atir Shamim, a resident of Azad Market area, on November 2011.

“On June 23, her husband pronounced talaq three times upon her and sent a fatwah on Whatsapp mentioning that triple talaq was pronounced,” said senior police officer Nupur Prasad.

He has been charged under the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act, 2019, the officer said.

The law, which came into being last week, makes talaq-e-biddat or any other similar form of talaq having the effect of instantaneous and irrevocable divorce pronounced by a Muslim husband void and illegal.
