The director of a madrassa here in Uttar Pradesh has been arrested after his in-laws approached Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's office with a complaint that he had used triple talaq against his wife besides beating her up and demanding dowry.
Initially, the Malpura police station showed no interest in the case and were trying to pressure Tarrunum, a mother of three, to compromise.
Javed, in his complaint, said Rahman and his family members had beaten up his sister, demanded dowry and then her husband divorced her.
She also alleged that undue pressure was applied by the police and some resourceful persons close to her husband's family tried to make her withdraw the case and settle for a compromise.
According to lawyers here, this appears to be a unique instance of a case being filed for triple talaq, though the FIR makes mention of only dowry harassment and beating.
