Lucknow: A triple talaq and halala victim was attacked with acid in Sambhal district.

The victim Razia was going on a motorcycle with her brother when some miscreants came from behind and threw acid. Razia and her brother have suffered acid burn injuries in the back and waist and have been admitted to the district hospital.

According to reports, Razia, a resident of Moradabad, was married to Mohd Noor of Sambhal in 2015. Noor gave triple talalq to Razia after a few months over a trivial dispute and Razia went back to her parents’ home.

After waiting for several months, Razia recently finally filed a petition in court against her husband. Her in-laws immediately came to her and said that her husband would take her back if she followed the procedure of Halala.

Razia agreed and was married to her father-in-law who divorced her after consummating the marriage.

Razia claims that she was in the Iddat period (Iddat is the period a woman must observe after the death of her spouse or after a divorce, during which she may not marry another man) when her husband visited her on several occasions and forced her to establish sexual relations with him.

When Razia became pregnant, her husband locked her in a room and tried to force an abortion. She returned to her home.

Razia has held her father-in-law and brother-in-law responsible for the attack. Station house officer (SHO) Shailendra Chauhan said that the complainant had been sent for medical examination and a case was being registered.
