A 62-year-old man allegedly pronounced triple talaq to his 29-year-old wife on WhatsApp, reported DNA.
Having married the man in May 2017, the victim moved to Oman and is said to have faced harassment. "After I went there (Oman), my husband started harassing me, but I compromised with the situation and continued to live with him. Later we were blessed with a baby, but the child was not healthy and passed away. My husband used to say that since the baby is no more now, he will leave me", she said.
The victim further accused her husband of forcefully sending her back to Hyderabad on the pretext of medical treatment, following which he gave her triple talaq via WhatsApp.
Considering the man is a resident of Oman, the victim has reached out to the External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj for her help and swift justice, "I request EAM Sushma Swaraj ma'am to help me", the victim narrated her ordeal. These kinds of people are playing with the lives of poor women. They are marrying them and later give them Talaq. Where should I go now without having any proper support", she said.
