Man gives Talaq two hours after marriage

Meerut: Denied a car as he had demanded, the husband pronounced triple talaq just two hours after the nikah in a Baghpat village. The matter was before the village panchayat which imposed a fine of Rs 2.25 lakh on the groom’s family and has banned the man from marrying for the next three years. The incident occurred in Daha village of Baghpat where the nikah of one Mohsina was conducted with Mohd Arif of Bhagwanpur. The two villages are just 7 kilometres apart.

Yusuf Ahmad, Mohsina’s uncle, said “He kept taunting the bride all through the ceremony and later as well. She was in tears when she rang us barely a couple of hours after the ceremony. Eventually, we brought her back home. The matter was brought before the village panchayat, but Arif stuck to his demand. Later, under pressure, Arif allowed his wife to come back home, but this time, Mohsina refused to go to her in-laws’ house. Agitated by what he called her stubbornness, Arif gave triple talaq to her over phone.”
