Even as the Centre is planning to bring a bill against 'triple talaq' in the Parliament, a 32- year-old woman in the neighbouring Fatehpur district was allegedly divorced by her husband from Kuwait on phone.

The woman, belonging to Dalelkheda village under Zafarganj police station area, yesterday visited the SP office and gave a complaint that she was divorced on November 24 by her husband from Kuwait by uttering "talaq" thrice on the phone, ASP Singh said.

He added that the woman, who came with her two children, and her father, said she was married ten years ago to a man from the same village who went to Kuwait last year for work.

The father of the woman claimed that demands were being made for dowry and Rs two lakhs were given to them about three years ago, the ASP said adding that investigations were on and necessary action will be taken soon.
