Tarannum lodged an FIR on Wednesday against her husband Abdul Rashid (44), who works in Saudi Arabia. Circle officer Shilpa Verma said Abdul had been booked under the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act, 2019, along with Dowry Prohibition Act and other sections of IPC.
The practice of triple talaq was declared illegal and unconstitutional in India four years ago, with the 2019 Act providing for a jail term up to three years.
Tarannum’s brother, Mohammad Shakir, had suffered kidney failure and was undergoing treatment in Mumbai. To save her brother’s life, she agreed to donate her kidney. Abdul, however, started putting pressure on her to take Rs 40 lakh from her brother in lieu of the kidney, Tarannum said. “When I refused, he pronounced ‘triple talaq’ through WhatsApp,” the woman said.
