SHAHJAHANPUR: A Muslim woman has accused her husband of giving her divorce through "triple talaq" and demanding dowry in Shahjahanpur district, police said today.

Akrama, a resident of Udaipur Bhula village, has filed a complaint with the police in connection with the matter. She alleged that her husband Hashim and her in-laws beat her up and demanded a dowry of Rs 50,000 on August 7.

When she refused, he divorced her through "triple talaq", the police said.

The woman yesterday got an FIR registered against Hashim and three relatives at the Mirzapur Police Station.

The accused is absconding, the police said.

On August 22, the Supreme Court set aside the practice of divorce through 'triple talaq' among Muslims. The court held that 'triple talaq' was against the basic tenets of the Quran.
