Man gives triple talaq to wife of 20 years after falling in love with widowed sister-in-law
THE INCIDENT TAKES PLACE IN KISHANGANJ DISTRICT OF BIHAR
PATNA: A man in Bihar served triple talaq (instant divorce) to his wife some 20 years after both had got married and were leading a happy life in north Indian town of Chandigarh.
The accused identified as Mohammad Nazim, father of four children, gave triple talaq to his wife last month after falling in love with his widowed sister-in-law.
Nazim, a resident of Baluadangi village under Tedagachh block in Kishanganj district, had married Noorjehan some 20 years back. The couple had four children and had been leading a happy life with his family at Chandigarh where ran his business.
Reports said Nazim returned his home in Kishanganj last month and fell in love with his widowed sister-in-law Taksarun.
Subsequently, he gave triple talaq to his wife over phone and secretly married his widowed sister-in-law.
When his first wife came to know about the incident, she reached his village in Kishanganj to meet him but her in-laws threw her out of the home, media reports said. They also threatened her with dire consequences if she dared to enter their home again.
Subsequently, she rushed to the SP office and narrated her woes before the official after which a case was registered against the accused person. Acting promptly, the police have arrested her accused husband.
Last month, a Muslim villager from Patna, handed out triple talaq to his wife through a registered post.
Such incidents go on unabated in Bihar even after the Narendra Modi government banning triple talaq and passing the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill 2019 which criminalises the instant divorcing of wives by the Muslim men.
