The victim, the resident of Inam Colony, visited the SSP office on Monday and gave a complaint alleging that her husband gave triple talaq to her while beating her.
SP Dehat Suraj Rai told PTI that on Monday a woman alleged that she was married two years ago to a youth from Gagalhedi area and her family members had spent Rs 20 lakh in marriage.
