The other case was of a 24-year-old complainant, a resident of Shradhanand Marg here, who got married on February 18, 2021, in Mumbai.

"Due to alleged harassment by her in-laws, she left her matrimonial house and returned to her parents' house in Delhi. She had previously lodged cases under sections 498A and 406 of the IPC, at PS Kamla Market, and filed a petition in court for maintenance and under the Domestic Violence Act," said the DCP.

On July 12, 2023, while attending court proceedings related to Maintenance and the Domestic Violence Act with her family at Tis Hazari court, she claimed that her husband, Naeem Mohammad Ansari, pronounced triple talaq outside the courtroom.
