AMU prof’s wife alleges him of triple talaq, threatens suicide

Aligarh: Wife of Aligarh Muslim University professor Khalid Bin Yusuf Khan, threatens suicide after she was allegedly given instant divorce (triple talaq) on WhatsApp.
Yasmeen threatened to commit suicide along with her three kids in front of vice-chancellor Tariq Mansoor’s residence if she is not provided justice by December 11, reported TOI.
She said that, Khan who is the chairman and professor of Sanskrit has been with the University for 27 years. Adding to that, she said Khan gave her talaq over WhatsApp and then sent her a text message.
“He turned me out of the house and I have been running from pillar to post to get justice. But no one has helped me so far. However, with the help of police I did manage to get access to my house on Friday evening,” Yasmeen claimed.
While Khan claimed himself a victim in the case and said: “To the contrary, she has been harassing me for the last two decades. She had hidden various facts from me before our marriage. I later got to know that she was not even a graduate, unlike what she had claimed. I will give her the third talaq too, on a proper date, and no one can stop me. I don’t care what she does.”
“I had not only given her talaq on WhatsApp and SMS but had also verbally told her in front of two other people and adhered to the time duration as per Sharia,” he added.
Rajesh Pandey, SSP of Aligarh said that Yasmeen has not yet registered a complaint against Khan and has been insisting on counselling. “In such a scenario, there isn’t much the police department can do. We have called both of them here.”
