Meerut woman constable raped by father-in-law gets triple talaq from husband

The survivor, who works at a local police station in Meerut, claimed that the accused had threatened to kill her if she revealed the matter to anyone

A woman constable in Meerut (Uttar Pradesh) was allegedly raped by her father-in-law, a police officer. Later, citing the incident, the woman’s husband divorced her by pronouncing triple talaq.

On 23 June night, the woman’s father-in-law Nazeer Ahmad allegedly raped her and threatened to kill her. It is also alleged that her husband Abid, who is posted at Police Lines in Meerut, also thrashed her and pronounced triple talaq. 

The accused father-in-law is currently posted in Ghaziabad. Police said they have initiated a probe into the incident.

The survivor, who works at a local police station in Meerut, claimed that the accused had threatened to kill her if she revealed the matter to anyone.

It is alleged that woman’s father-in-law threatened to kill the woman if she revealed the crime to anyone. 

Meanwhile, police have filed a case against the PAC personnel and the woman’s husband following a complaint by the victim. 

However, the woman narrated the ordeal to her husband Abid, who is a police officer. But, instead of helping his wife, the man divorced her using the banned triple talaq system.

SP (City) Vineet Bhatnagar said the police have launched a case against the main accused Nazeer, who is posted in Ghaziabad, and his son Abid, who works at the Police Lines in Meerut, at the Kotwali Police Station.

In her complaint, the woman claimed that she was regularly harassed and beaten by her in-laws for dowry ever since her marriage with Abid three years ago.

On 22 August 2017, the Indian deemed instant triple talaq (talaq-e-biddah) unconstitutional. Three of the five judges in the panel concurred that the practice of triple talaq is unconstitutional. The remaining two declared the practice to be constitutional. Three of India’s neighbouring countries Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are among the 23 countries worldwide that have banned triple talaq.
