Pune: A man nearly set his wife on fire at the Shivajinagar family court premises on Tuesday afternoon after his wife refused to withdraw a complaint against him in connection with triple talaq. The 22-year-old woman, in her complaint, said, “A divorce case is on with my husband Sohail Shaikh from the last one-and-a-half years after he sent me a notice saying that he has given me talaq and I should accept it.”

Narrating her ordeal, she said, “I got married in May 2015, and since the beginning, I was regularly harassed by my husband and his family over their demand for gold. I was subjected to violence, mental harassment and was forced into unnatural sex, after bearing regular harassment for over a period of one-and-half-years I was sent back to my home by my in-laws, as I objected against the treatment I got there.”

The complainant informed that after she was sent home, the relatives of her husband approached her relative in order to sort out the matter. She said, “In February 2017, they called us to one of their relative’s home to resolve the issue, but during the discussion, my husband was furious and told me that he is giving me divorce by pronouncing talaq three times. After a few months, he sent me a notice that he has given me divorce by pronouncing ‘talaq’ three times and I should accept it. Only after that, I decided to fight the case and replied to the notice and also registered an FIR against him and my in-laws.”
