Jaipur: A woman from Rajasthan was allegedly raped by her father-in-law and his brother, while her husband issued triple talaq to her.

When the 25-year-old woman objected the talaq, her father-in-law and his brother allegedly raped her. It is also reported that the woman was beaten up by her brother-in-law. 

Following the incident, the police have registered a case against the husband for giving triple talaq. The father-in-law and the other relative have been charged for gang rape. An investigation into the matter is underway. 

The Lok Sabha passed the Triple Talaq Bill on July 25 and got Rajya Sabha’s nod on July 30. The new law The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act, 2019 makes talaq-e-biddat or any other similar form of talaq having the effect of instant and irrevocable divorce pronounced by a Muslim husband void and illegal. It makes it illegal to pronounce talaq three times in spoken, written or through SMS or WhatsApp or any other electronic chat in one sitting.
