An FIR has been filed by the Anand police against a 28-year-old man who allegedly gave his wife immediate triple talaq via an Instagram post.

The 27-year-old woman, a native of Umreth taluka in Anand district, and her parents went to the police station on Wednesday.

According to the police, the woman married a man from Mahisagar district's Debar village in November 2019. According to the authorities, the couple began to have problems, and the woman returned to her parents' home after being thrown out of her husband's home.

Sub-inspector Chetansinh Rathod told: "The husband had earlier also uttered triple talaq in July when the couple had a fight and the victim was forced to leave his house… She told us that she was not aware of the law against triple talaq and did not file a complaint back then. Recently, she wanted to check on her husband's activity and created a social media account in a pseudo name. However, the husband found out that it was the wife behind that account and he uttered the triple talaq again on social media. That is when she informed her family and approached the police on Wednesday."

The man has been charged with violating the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act of 2019, which makes instant triple talaq illegal.

According to Rathod, the woman had previously filed a harassment case against her husband. "We are now investigating the complaint of triple talaq. The husband is yet to be summoned," Rathod said.
