Shamsunnisa alleged that after she opposed his criminal activities, Shah started committing atrocities on her and on May 25, he divorced her by uttering ‘talaq’ thrice over the phone.
The police have started a probe into the matter based on a complaint filed by the woman.
“We have asked the Maharashtra Police to verify the charge against the man levelled by his wife that he was involved in the Nagpur blast,” Additional SP Ajay Pratap said in Banda on Thursday.
The ASP said her complaint was being looked into seriously.
