UP Woman gang-raped by husband and his cousin, given 'Triple Talaq' as dowry

A woman was allegedly raped by her husband and his cousin and later divorced through 'triple talaq' for not giving dowry in Gonda, police said on Friday.
The accused's husband, Mohammad Adnan from Lucknow, was arrested on Thursday and an FIR was registered against him and his cousin, who is on the run, they said.

In her complaint, the woman alleged that her husband demanded dowry and beat her for it.

Due to the alleged violence, she started staying at her mother's house, Superintendent of Police Akash Tomar said.

On Tuesday, Adnan and his cousin went to his in-laws' house and after finding the woman alone, raped her, Tomar said.

Adnan then beat her and divorced her through the banned practice of "triple talaq", police said.

Efforts are on to nab the fleeing cousin, they said.
