'Bareilly: Three new cases of triple talaq have been reported from Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly district in the past 24 hours. In the first case, a 26-year-old disabled man Md Rashid gave triple talaq to his 17-year-old wife Chand Bibi because she was illiterate and did not know how to cook. Chand failed to give Rashid breakfast on time which angered him and he allegedly thrashed her and gave her ‘talaq’. The matter was immediately taken up with the police but the man remained adamant and pronounced triple talaq again. The second incident was reported from Shekhupura locality between Aksheer Bano, 26, and Mushtajab Khan. The couple was married five years ago and is parents to a two-year-old son. Aksheer, however, was forced to leave her home because of unfulfilled dowry demand. She has filed a dowry case against her husband and the matter is currently in court. Aksheer met Thursday, the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Bareilly Muniraj G and filed a complaint. She said that her husband tried to snatch her son at a busy marketplace and gave her ‘talaq’ after the failed attempt. The third case was reported from Sirauli where Gulistan, 35, was married to Mohammed Laiq around 11 years ago. The couple has three children. Gulistan was forced to leave the house in July. She then contacted the police for help. The matter was taken up with the police and Laiq was asked to appear for counseling, August 7 where he told the counsellor that he had given talaq to his wife before the law was enacted. He also pronounced talaq at the counselling centre and refused to take her back. The SSP said: “An FIR would be registered according to the newly-enacted law if counselling does not succeed. We are committed towards safeguarding the right of a woman.” The police are carefully dealing with the triple talaq cases by offering counselling to save the marriages. IANS'
