A pregnant woman given 'triple talaq' by husband barely hours after nation welcomed SC's historic verdict on the regressive practice
Barely hours after the Supreme Court on Tuesday struck down the 1,400 year-old Muslim practice of 'triple talaq' by declaring it "unconstitutional" and upholding that it was "not a basic and integral part of Islam", a pregnant woman in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh was allegedly given triple talaq by her husband.

After the incident, the woman lodged an FIR against her husband alleging that she was tortured and beaten up by her spouse for dowry. The victim also alleged that her better half drove her out of their house as his dowry demands were not met.

The woman, who resides in Meerut's Mohalla Kamra Nawaban had married the accused six years ago and is a mother of three. She has also alleged that she suffered a miscarriage due to the beating.

According to police, the victim's family members met her husband to discuss the matter and told him that the Supreme Court has banned the practice of triple talaq, but he did not relent.

Based on the woman's complaint, an FIR has been registered against the victim's husband and six others in connection with the incident under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Dowry Prohibition Act.

Taking cognizance of the incident, All India Muslim Women Personal Law Board (AIMWPLB) President Shaista Amber told PTI that the Board considers this matter as a case of contempt of the top court and regarding this, the Board will take up this case before the apex court for fixing punishment.
