Hyderabad: Acting on a complaint made by a woman, the Telangana Police on Tuesday arrested her husband for sending a triple talaq message through a postcard.

According to reports, Mohammad Haneef (38), a supervisor at a textile showroom, was arrested in Kukatpally. 

He got married to a 26-year-old woman from Talabkatta on March 9.

A day after the marriage, Haneef left the house and informed his wife that he is undergoing a treatment at a private hospital, reported oneindia.

On March 19, the wife received a postcard from Haneef in which he had written talaq three times and said that the decision was taken in presence of two people.

He later gave her a call regarding the same.

The woman then went back to her parental house in Talabkatta and apprised her parents of the the incident.

The police registered a case of cheating and arrested Haneef from his house.

Triple talaq is a controversial Muslim practice that has been debated and is being challenged in the Supreme Court.

The apex court is likely to take up the matter whether or not to ban the practice on May 11.
