A woman in Kandhla area in Uttar Pradesh's Shamli district has alleged that her husband gave her triple talaq over the phone earlier this month.

"My husband gave me triple talaq over the phone. I have his call recording to prove this. I want justice. He should be punished for this crime. We got married four years ago. We have two children also. The children are staying with me. My life has been completely destroyed. If justice is not given to me then I will self-immolate myself," said the victim.

Talking about the incident, Superintendent of Police, Rajesh Shrivastava said, "We have taken cognizance of the matter and started the investigation. Strict action will be taken against the culprit."
