Woman, children sit outside husband's house against talaq
Kozhikode (Ker): A 35-year-old Muslim man was booked for allegedly giving triple talaq to his wife here, five days after she sat on a protest along with her two young children outside his house.
Her case came to light after news reports showed the purdah-clad woman sitting on a pathway near the village house at nearby Vanimel along with her five-year old daughter and two-year old son.
Fatimah Juveria, 24, who has been protesting outside his house to bring attention to her plight, has alleged that her husband got married to another woman after giving her triple talaq.
Based on her complaint, the Valayam police here registered a case against her husband, A K Sameer, under Sections 3 and 4 of the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act, 2019 on Thursday.
Sameer, 35, a native of Vanimel, works in the Gulf, the police said. "According to her complaint, the accused gave her triple talaq on September 24 at the premises of a local court," a police official said.
