A woman slapped her husband when he gave triple talaq in a panchayat court in Bihar. The incident happened in Saraiya block of Muzaffarpur district on Friday (December 7).
The couple — husband Mohammad Dulare and wife Soni Khatoon — had a love marriage in 2014. However, the couple soon started facing differences in their relationship.
When the matter reached the panchayat court, the village head organised a meeting to resolve the problems between the two. It was during a hearing of the panchayat that Dulare rose from his seat and gave triple talaq to his wife, according to an ANI report.
Reacting to this, Khatoon, in a fit of rage, slapped her husband in front of the panchayat. The villagers had to intervene to stop the husband-wife scuffle. Some people gathered there also recorded videos. These videos were also seen doing rounds on the internet.
The panchayat confirmed to ANI that Dulare, who runs a mobile shop in Saraiya, got married to Khatoon in 2014. Families of both the woman and the man agreed to their marriage after the couple had gone missing for a night, the ANI report mentioned.

But, as time passed, the two were not satisfied with the union. Dulare, soon, left Khatoon and married another woman. After Khatoon’s family learnt about this, they filed an FIR.
So far, four cases have been filed in the matter.
In September 2018, the union cabinet cleared an ordinance which made talaq-e-biddat or the practice of instant triple talaq as a criminal offence. The law says that whosoever pactices triple talaq will be liable to be imprisonment up to three years.
