UP ex-mantri in jail after 4th wife’s triple-talaq plaint | India News

AGRA: Chaudhary Basheer,a former minister in the Mulayam Singh government who switched parties thrice before becoming an Independent politician, has been sent to jail after his fourth wife accused him of pronouncing triple talaq.
“The former minister was arrested on Thursday and jailed on court orders. A case was registered against him under Section 504 (intentional insult giving provocation) of Indian Penal Code and Sections 3 and 4 of the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act (talaq void and illegal, and punishment for it) after his wife Nagma filed a complaint,” Agra SSP Muniraj G said.
Nagma, 30, had married Basheer, 45, in 2012. The couple has two sons, aged seven and eight. “On July 23, I came to know that my husband was going to marry again,” Nagma stated in her complaint. She had been living with her parents for three years, she added, because she “was harassed by him and his sisters who would beat me up, abuse me and torture me mentally.” She finally decided to go home to Basheer and confront him.
“He abused me again and pronounced triple talaq, forcing me to leave. I sought help from police but didn’t get any. As an ex-minister, he is influential,” she said in her complaint. She had been posting videos on social media, asking police for help. In response, Basheer had also started sharing audio clips in which he denied her allegations and said he was being framed for political reasons.
“He has a dozen criminal cases pending against him for rioting, attempt to murder, loot and abduction,” a police official said.
