A Muslim woman who was given triple talaq three days ago was allegedly raped and set on fire by her ex-husband on Wednesday morning in Dadri. The woman was admitted to a hospital in Greater Noida with severe burn injuries.
In her statement to the police, the victim said her ex-husband who had given her triple talaq three days ago entered her room on Wednesday morning, raped her and forced her into unnatural sex.
“Then, she claimed that kerosene was poured on her and she was set afire. She received burn injuries on her lower limbs,” said Ramsen Singh, station house officer of Dadri police station.
The victim was married to the man since 2008 and had two children with him. Three days ago, the man gave her triple talaq but she continued to stay in a separate room in the same residence with her children, Singh said.
The victim’s father said, “Two months ago, her husband and her in-laws demanded money from her. They had also beaten her up, sent her back to her maternal house and kept the two children with them.”
The victim’s father said that his daughter would often cry as she was worried about her children. “Last week, she couldn’t stop herself and went back to her husband’s place in Dadri and stayed there in a separate room with her children,” her father said.
Her in-laws also supported the man in inflicting harm on the woman, the police said.
“Based on the victims’ statement, we have registered a case under sections 376 (rape), 377 (unnatural sex), 307 (attempt to murder) of the IPC against her ex-husband and booked her in-laws under Section 498a (relative of husband subjecting woman to cruelty) of the IPC,” the police officer said.
