HYDERABAD: A woman MBA graduate has accused her husband of divorcing her by sending a message through messaging app WhatsApp here.

The woman, a resident of Tolichowki area, said she married Mudasir Ahmed Khan, who works in Saudi Arabia, in February last year.

She told reporters that her husband was with her for 20 days and left for (Saudi) in March 2016.

"He (Khan) was initially good with me and everything was fine and we were regularly in touch," the woman said yesterday.

"When I went to my in-laws house in September, my father-in-law locked my room and asked me to go away saying my husband has divorced me. My in-laws did not specify any reasons and just asked me to leave the house and they evicted me from the house," she alleged.

She demanded that the government should bring out a law that such people are not given bail.

The message purportedly sent in the name of Khan in September, which the woman showed to media, said, "I Mudasir Ahmed Khan gave you triple talaq and removed you from the wedlock. You will soon receive the official divorce declaration paper from my end and please do not bother to come to Saudi."

The woman said she had approached the police also.

When contacted, the police said they are verifying the matter.

Last month, a 38-year-old man was arrested here for cheating his wife by giving her 'talaq' through a post card within eight days of marriage.

Another man, hailing from here and based in the US, allegedly gave 'talaq' to his wife through WhatsApp. The case came to light in February when she approached the police alleging that her in-laws tried to murder her.

In another incident, a case of cheating and harassment was registered early this month against a non-resident Indian who allegedly divorced his wife through a newspaper advertisement.
