A husband is wanted by police after he filed for an illegal instant divorce and allegedly fled from his second wife to Dubai.
The man, named in local media as Hasibullah, has been accused of sending a Talaqnama in the mail before leaving the country.
Police are now reportedly working to get him back to India after his wife, named as Rashida, lodged a complaint to police over the weekend.
Talaqnama translates to null and void and is sent as divorce proceedings.
It is illegal to send such a message via WhatsApp, post or phone.
Rashida accused her husband of trying to divorce her without discussing it – posting the files to her parents home.
She said: “He didn’t even give me talaq in person and yet just sent a Talaqnama to my parental house on September 18.
“I was married as per Muslim rituals to Hasibullah Khan from Jakirnagar (Mango) on November 16, 2018. I came to know that he was already married after he took me to Abu Dhabi six months after marriage. When I started questioning him on this he started manhandling and torturing me and threatened to give talaq, demanding Rs 5 lakh.”

Alok Ranjan, deputy superintendent of police, told the Hindustan Times: “We had gone to his house in Jakirnagar under Mango Police Station but his brother told us that he had left for Dubai a couple of days ago.
“His second wife, Rashida Begum, had stated in her complaint that he was to leave India on Sunday. We are taking necessary steps to call him back to India and further investigation is on.”
Officials are now working to get the allegedly fleeing lover back into India.
Nishat Khatoon, leader Mahila Vikash Manch, added: “As per Supreme Court’s order and central law, talaq by post, WhatsApp or on telephone, et cetera., have been banned and is now illegal.
“I have also tweeted the matte and other details to Emirate Steel – where Hasibullah works in Abu Dhabi, Indian embassy in United Arab Emirates, UAE government and Union Ministry of External Affairs, Delhi, seeking prompt and necessary action to get him back.”
Hasibullah’s talaqnama read: “Our marriage was on the condition of her bearing me a child as my first wife was not able to bear a child. After six month in Abu Dhabi, I had brought her back here. 10-15 days after I went to Abu Dhabi again, she told me that she was pregnant.
“After nine months, when my mother asked about the date of delivery, she said that she had delivered a stillborn baby. She even refused to show me medical documents for this though.
“Later when documents were checked, she gave the excuse that she had a tumour in her stomach, breaching all my trust. Hence, I have given her talaq and she is no more my wife”.
