A case of dowry death has been registered against the husband and in-laws of a woman who was given triple talaq over phone and allegedly locked up for a month without food and water leading to her death, police said today.
The deceased is survived by a six-year-old child.
The victim's sister has alleged that the deceased woman's husband used to beat her up for dowry.
First she was given triple talaq, then was kept confined inside a room without food and water, the victim's sister alleged.
Taking cognisance of the matter, the district police registered a dowry death case against the woman's husband and in-laws.
Last week a woman from Mahoba was reportedly given triple talaq and forced to leave her husband's house because the 'chapati' she had prepared was burnt.
