On March 7 he sent the documents by post through a local qazi to her house, police said, adding no arrest has been made as they would counsel the couple.
"We are investigating whether the divorce was given as per procedures/formalities or not.The case will be transferred to the Women Police Station here," Deputy Commissioner of Police (South Zone) V Satyanarayana told PTI.
