Kaushambi (Uttar Pradesh) [India] Jan 10 (ANI): A woman from Uttar Pradesh's Kaushambi has alleged that her husband in an inebriated condition gave instant talaq to her over the phone.

After the incident, the victim approached Superintendent of Police (SP) Kaushambi Pradeep Gupta in the hope to receive justice.

Victim Rosy Begum married to Shohrab alias Aslam 17 years ago and they have three sons, Suhail, Adil and Akhtar.

She alleged that her husband is an alcoholic and had in the past pressurised her to do an 'illegitimate' job for money to meet his addiction needs.

"Considering the future of my children, I did not retaliate and kept on being tortured. But two months ago, he escaped with the kids to an unknown place. I even approached the police but my application was not entertained. Then I contacted the police to rescue my kids suspecting that my husband has taken them away, but nothing has been done till date," Begum told ANI.

She added that a few days back she received a phone call on Sunday from an unknown number and the caller, identified as Sandeep, handed over the phone to Shohrab who called off the marriage saying talaq thrice.

She went to the Kaushambi police station to file a complaint but no action has been taken so far.

Meanwhile, Superintendent of police, Pradeep Gupta refrained from giving any comment on the issue before any investigation. (ANI)
