A person has been booked here on various charges after he allegedly pronounced triple talaq on his wife, police said on Sunday.

Police said that the incident was reported from Rupaidiah Police Station area of the district.

Additional Superintendent of Police Ravindra Kumar Singh said, "Afsana had married Mohammad Aarif in 2015. She alleged that her husband and in-laws were exerting pressure on her to arrange Rs 50,000 as dowry to purchase a motorcycle."

When she expressed inability to fulfil the demand, she was thrashed and threatened with dire consequences, he added.

Police said that Afsana had been living with her parents for the last four years.

"In the police complaint registered on Saturday, Afsana said that on July 16 Aarif married another girl and pronounced triple talaq on her on August 8," they said.

Singh also said that based on Afsana's complaint, a case has been registered against her husband and three in-laws.

The accused persons are absconding and efforts are on to nab them, police said.
