Hyderabad: The Hyderabad police on Friday registered a case against a man for allegedly giving triple talaq to his wife as she has misaligned teeth.

Rukhsana Begum has alleged that her husband Mustafa and in-laws demanded dowry and in the lieu harassed her. Begum married Mustafa on June 27, 2019. The woman, in her complaint, alleged that her husband abused her for months.

"One day, he uttered 'talaq' thrice and left. When I called him, he said there was no relation between us. I want justice," ANI quoted the woman as saying.

According to the police, on October 31, a case was registered against Mustafa under section 498A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), Dowry Act and Triple Talaq Act.

Circle Inspector Kushaiguda, K Chandra Shekar told ANI, "We have received a complaint from Begum accusing her husband of pronouncing triple talaq as she has crooked teeth and for harassing her for extra dowry."
