Following a complaint lodged by a woman, the Pune City Police has booked five persons, including her husband and in-laws, for allegedly giving her ‘triple talaq’ orally because she failed to bring Rs 20 lakh from her parents.
The woman, who is 25 years old, lodged the FIR in this case at Kondhwa police station last week. According to the complaint, the woman married Faizal Shaikh two years ago and her husband and in-laws harassed her physically and mentally, police said.
