She also alleged that her husband inflicted burn injuries on her with cigarettes days before ‘divorcing’ her by giving triple talaq, the police said.

A woman was given triple talaq in Mahoba district of the Uttar Pradesh after a roti (chapati) she prepared got burnt. She was also forced to leave her husband’s house. The incident had happened in Pahretha village and came to light after the 24-year-old woman registered a complaint with the police.

Based on her complaint, a case of domestic violence will be registered against the husband, cops said.

Last year, the woman got married. She also alleged that her husband inflicted burn injuries on her with cigarettes days before ‘divorcing’ her by giving triple talaq, the police said, reported news agency PTI.

The Supreme Court had on August 22 last year struck down triple talaq, calling the practice unconstitutional and in violation of Article 14 of the Constitution, which provides for equality before the law.The “triple talaq” bill has not been cleared by the Rajya Sabha yet.

The top court’s verdict vindicates the stand of the government, which had said “triple talaq”violates fundamental rights of women. Several Muslim women who have been divorced because of it, including on Skype and on WhatsApp, had appealed to the top court to end the practice.
