A professor of Aligarh Muslim University on Sunday gave Triple Talaq to his wife Yasmeen Khalid on Whatsapp, months after the Supreme Court struck down triple talaq as unconstitutional.
The woman had last week approached the police alleging her husband was "torturing" her and had locked their house to prevent her from entering it.
The alleged victim has threatened to commit suicide and kill her three children in front of Vice Chancellor Tariq Mansoor's residence if she doesn't get justice by December 11.
The husband, in his defence, said that his wife had concealed several facts from him before getting married. He alleged that she was harassing him.
Refusing to budge from his stand, the AMU professor said he would give her the third 'talaq' too and no one can stop him.
In a landmark judgment, the apex court on August 22 struck down the centuries-old practice of instant triple talaq among Indian Muslims as unconstitutional, manifestly arbitrary and void in law.
