ALIGARH: A case has been registered against Khalid Bin Yusuf Khan; a Sanskrit Professor in Aligarh Muslim University after his wife accused him of divorcing her through triple talaq.

The lady who has been identified as Yaseem Khalid said that she along with her children will commit suicide if justice is not delivered. 

Speaking to ANI, Khalid said first she was given talaq via text then verbally when she met him for compromise. "On 30th October, he gave me talaq via a text, again on 8th November he verbally gave me talaq when I and children went to him to seek his help," said Yaseem Khalid.

Yaseem also alleged that her husband locked all the doors of the house they were staying in. 
"My husband came back to our house and abused my children and locked our house."

Yaseem also revealed the reason behind the entire dispute and said, "My husband helped someone get a job in the University so the students in the Department wrote a letter to the Vice-Chancellor. He accused me of writing the letter." said Yaseem. 

Yaseem has registered a case in Aligarh's Civil Lines Police Station.

SSP Rajesh Pandey said the wife met him last week and alleged her husband had sent her two "talaq" notices on WhatsApp.

"She requested us to settle the matter. The police informed the professor about the settlement process but he did not turn up before the settlement officer," Pandey said.

A case has been registered against the professor on charges of "harassment and wrongfully preventing his wife from entering their house", he said.

This incident comes to light two months after Supreme Court of India pronounced triple talaq as ‘unconstitutional’. 

The AMU academic, however, said the case was subjudice since October first week.

He said that according to the law, he had served two notices on his wife after the stipulated period and was preparing for the last one.

The professor claimed he had documentary evidence to prove his wife misled him about her past.

"I have documents to prove that my wife had pledged to change her behaviour and save our marriage," he said.

The husband said he voluntarily left his official bungalow to avoid confrontations with his wife.

Meanwhile, the woman has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath alleging that her husband went against the Supreme Court's recent judgement on "triple talaq".
