Etah: A man in Uttar Pradesh's Etah district gives talaq to his wife for reaching home 10 minutes late, here on Wednesday.

The woman alleged that her husband gave her divorce as she failed to keep her promise of returning home within 30 minutes.

“I went to my mother’s house to see my ailing grandmother. My husband told me to return within half an hour. I was late only by 10 minutes. He then called me on my brother’s mobile number and uttered “talaq” thrice. I was completely shattered by his move,” the woman told media.

The woman also accused her in-laws for demanding dowry and beating her for not being able to fulfill their demands of the same.

“They beat me at times when I am home. I also had an abortion because of their moves. My family is very poor which is why they were unable to give anything to my husband’s family,” she said.

She further said “Now, it is the responsibility of the government to provide justice to me or else I will commit suicide.”

It is to be mentioned that The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2018, which was passed in the Lok Sabha on December 27 during the Winter Session, criminalizes the practice and classifies triple talaq as a cognizable and non-bailable offence, with three years’ imprisonment and a fine. The bill is pending in the Rajya Sabha.

The investigation is on in this matter and appropriate action will be taken to resolve the issue, said Police.
