Staff Reporter,

Though declared as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, the city seems to be still witnessing the cases of Triple Talaq. Aseem Sheikh, a resident of Kamptee ended his marriage of nine years with three simple words ‘Talaq, Talaq, Talaq’ over the phone. Sheikh works as a mechanic at Ketan Hyundai, Wadi.

A single phone call by Sheikh has broke down Shiba Sheikh, a mother of two kids, 8-year-old son Ziyan and 3-year-old daughter Zyra. However, she hasn’t accepted the divorce. She has now decided to drag Sheikh to the court.

Aamir Raza, a closed family friend of the victim’s family, informed that Sheikh and his family has been demanding dowry from Sheeba for last three years. He alleged that Sheikh is also having an extra marital affair and thus have asked for the divorce.

Raza said that Sheikh would often argue with Sheeba over petty reasons. During Ramzaan, he asked Sheeba to take Zyra at her parent’s residence at Noori Colony, Jaripatka. Since then, Sheikh didn’t came to take Sheeba back to home. Raza informed that Sheikh have kept Ziyan with him.

“He is not allowing Ziyan to meet Sheeba.” said Raza.
Sheeba has filed a police complaint at Jaripatka police station. Police has filed a Non-cognizable complaint. Sheeba’s family have reported the matter to court and are waiting for the further proceedings.
