A triple-talaq victim, hailing from Sujatganj, Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, was advised to follow Sharia law and accept the triple talaq given to her by the husband when she went to the Babu Purwa PS to lodge a complaint against the same. “It’s because of girls like you that people get to interfere with Muslim laws”, police officer Mansoor Ahmed allegedly reprimanded the victim asking her to obey her husband.
When Hina Parveen confronted the officer, saying that Indian law has declared triple talaq illegal and unconstitutional, the police officer Mansoor Ahmed sternly replied: “You are not the first girl to be given triple-talaq. This is a regular Muslim practice under the Sharia law, which you should follow. Forget about Indian law, just follow Sharia law”.
IO of Babu Purwa PS, Mansoor Ahmed, who had lectured Hina, asking her to give in to the demands of her husband and his family, has reportedly been transferred and IO Pawan Dubey has replaced him and taken charge.
Hina Parveen had married one Noorzade alias Ishan from Ajit ganj, falling under the jurisdiction of Babu Purwa police station area in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh on July 5, 2019. Noorzade went to Saudi Arabia, three months after their marriage. On October 27, 2019, Noorzade made a Whatsapp call to Hina and gave her triple talaq over the phone. After this, her in-laws beat her up and threw Hina out of the house.
Hina filed an FIR against 8 people including husband Noorzade, mother-in-law, father-in-law, brothers-in-law and sister-in-law on November 4, 2019, at Babu Purwa police station. Hina alleged that her in-laws had demanded Rs 5 lakh as dowry. Her parents, who belonged to a humble background, could not arrange for the money, following which, the in-laws started torturing her and conspired the divorce, said Hina. She also accused her brother-in-law of threatening her of an acid attack, after she lodged the FIR against them. Hina had also taken to social media to sought help in January.
According to a Jagran report, Hina Praveen feared that the probe in her case would be hampered, as her in-laws might influence the police in Babu Purwa thana. Owing to this, she had demanded the authorities to transfer her case to the Rail Bazar police station.
As per her demands, the case was transferred to the Rail Bazar police station. Reportedly Sujatganj police station in-charge Mansoor Ahmed had been entrusted with the inquiry but he had taken no action in the case. After Mansoor Ahmed’s transfer, the case was handed over to inspector Pawan Dubey.
