A city resident has filed a police complaint against her husband for uttering instant triple talaq, which was scrapped by the Supreme Court last year.

The complaint was lodged with the Mahila police station on Thursday.

Police said they are treating the case with ‘caution’ as it was borne out of a family dispute.

Shamshina Naz, a resident of Azadnagar locality, alleged that her husband, Manzur Hussain, had given her instant triple talaq after a family dispute.

She has sought justice and legal action against him, along with her in-laws.

The woman has alleged that her husband gave her triple talaq on December 22, 2017.

“We got married in October 2007 and have a son. After a small family dispute, I was driven away from home in presence of my in-laws by uttering triple talaq. I am currently living at my mother’s home,” she said.

Officer-in-charge of Mahila police station in Sakchi, Sima Kumari, said the couple had a family dispute but the allegation of triple talaq is yet to be verified.

The couple’s family members were supposed to visit the police station on Friday to furnish their side of the incident but they did not appear.

“The issue is a domestic dispute and we are trying to solve it at the police station level. The husband and the other in-laws will visit the police station on Saturday to put forth their arguments,” Kumari said.

The complainant said that she had moved the Emarat-e-sharia (body of Muslim clergy to deal with such issues) but did not get justice.

“Hence, I had no option but to approach police,” Naz said.
