As per Varisha, her husband gave her triple talaq and forced her out of the house. He said that Varisha can only live with him if she gets Rupees 10 lakhs or a car as dowry. The police registered a case against Varisha’s husband Shahnul Haq, brother-in-law Kamrul Hasan, mother-in-law Aladi, Mohd Hafiz aka Munna and Meena after a written complaint was given by the victim.

The Triple Talaq Bill which is already passed by the Lok Sabha, provisions a jail term of three years for the man who gives instant triple talaq.

We should not see it as a vote-bank politics and should have a humanitarian approach.”
