Rukhsana Begum married Mustafa on June 27, 2019. Rukhsana Begum said, “At the time of our marriage Mustafa and his family had demanded so many things as dowry and my family fulfilled all their demands. After their marriage, my husband and in-laws started harassing me to bring more gold and money from my home. Mustafa even took a bike from my brother.”
“They used to torture me regularly and finally Mustafa said that he does not like me because of my crooked teeth and that he did not want to live with me anymore. My in-laws locked me inside their house for 10 to 15 days,” she added.”
She further stated that later when she fell ill, her husband and in-laws sent her to her parents’ house.
Begum said, “I filed a complaint with the local police and my husband and in-laws agreed to compromise. They said that they will take me back to their place. But on October 1, Mustafa came to my place and said that he would not take me back with him. He abused my parents and pronounced triple talaq.”
Begum stated that on October 12, she tried to contact her husband when he again pronounced triple talaq on the phone.
Begum also said, “On October 26, I lodged a complaint with the local police against my husband and in-laws for giving triple talaq and demanding extra dowry. Police registered a case against them. I want justice in my case.”
