However, the next day of the marriage, Haneef left the house and later informed her that he was undergoing treatment in a private hospital and would not return home for a few days. But, on March 16, Haneef had sent a postcard letter to his wife residential address in Kukatpally by writing talaq thrice and also said that he had written it in the presence of two witnesses. Haneef had also informed the talaq letter issue to his wife over mobile phone. Shocking over the postcard talaq letter, the woman came to her parents’ house in Talabkatta and later lodged a complaint with the police.
A case was registered under Sections 498A (Husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty), 420 (cheating) and 417 (Punishment for cheating) of the IPC against Haneef . It was the second marriage for both Haneef and the woman, police said. Meanwhile, on March 3 last month, the city police have arrested Mohammed Hafeez and his wife Athiya, who drove away their daughter-in-law Mehren Noor from their house after their son living in the US sent talaq message to his wife on WhatsApp. (UNI)
