MORADABAD: A man in Uttar Pradesh's Moradabad district wanted a buffalo and Rs one lakh in cash among other things as dowry and when she was unable to fulfil the demands, he gave her triple talaq, police here said. The man was later arrested.

"A Muslim man has been arrested for giving Triple Talaq to his wife in Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh and sent to judicial custody. An FIR has been registered for the case of domestic violence and demand for the dowry that included Rs 1 lakh and a buffalo," said Deepak, ASP Moradabad.
