Indian Man Divorces Wife Within 24 Hrs for Dowry

A man divorced his wife within 24 hours of getting married in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, police said on Wednesday.

Shahe Alam, a resident of Jahangirabad, married Ruksana Bano on July 13 and subsequently used triple talaq to divorce her after her family did not give him a motorbike as dowry.

The woman’s father lodged an FIR and a case was registered under the Dowry Act against Alam and 12 members of his family.

The case was handed over to the Circle Officer at the Fatehpur police circle for further investigation.

Superintendent of Police Akash Tomar said the necessary action would be taken as soon as investigations were completed.
