Lucknow. The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act, 2019 which criminalises triple talaq has, so far, failed to act as a deterrent to the cases of triple talaq in UP.
In recent weeks, there has been a spurt in such cases in the state.
A woman from the Shamli alleged, "My husband gave me triple talaq over the phone. I have his call recording to prove this."
Another woman claimed that her husband gave her triple talaq inside the premises of the Chief Judicial Magistrate court where the couple had come to the court to settle a case.
