Surat : A 26-year-old woman living in Sanjan, Valsad district has lodged a complaint against her husband and in-laws after he gave her triple talaq over an instant messaging application. Based on her complaint, Umargam police booked Jailun Kaliya and his parents Javed and Nafisa. Kaliya is abroad and he sent the talaq nama (divorce deed) on WhatsApp to his mother last month. She took a printout and submitted the papers at a local mosque.
The complainant, Farhim said the mosque administrator informed her father Salim of the divorce deed, but she and her family refused to accept it. On June 14, she approached Umargam police.
Farhim alleges her husband, Jailun, decided to divorce her as she turned down his request to give their son to his sister who did not have kids.
“The accused husband is out of country and his location is not known. He works in shipping industry and is likely to return in a few months. He sent the talaq nama on WhatsApp to his mother,” said police.
While Farhim told police that Kaliya was in Canada, his parents claim he is in Dubai. The accused were booked under various sections of the IPC and The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Ordinance, 2019.
Police have registered the statements of Kaliya and his parents as well as other witnesses in the case. “Further action will be taken after recording the statement of the mosque administrator,” said police.
