Sitapur: A woman here in Uttar Pradesh has alleged her nose was chopped off by her in-laws after she refused to withdraw a case of triple talaq.
The woman's husband had given her triple talaq over the phone after which her mother filed a complaint against him, a police official said.
"Both the families were called and a counselling attempt was made. But when the matter was not resolved, we filed the case under relevant sections of the triple talaq act," the official said.
However, the woman's in-laws have said that she had a sharp weapon which she used to cut off her own nose. "She also hit me with stone," the woman's brother-in-law said.
According to the woman's mother Sharifun Nisha, her daughter was beaten up by her in-laws.
"I went to the police station to file a triple talaq complaint of my daughter. Her in-laws threatened her after she did not withdraw the case. They beat her up," she said.
