New Delhi: 

The Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to hear a Muslim woman's plea challenging the two Talaq (divorce) notices given by her husband and sought direction for registration of FIR against him.

A bench of Justices Indira Banerjee and Sanjiv Khanna said it will hear the plea on Friday.

Advocate MM Kashyap, appearing for the woman, said her husband after nine years of marriage has given her two notices for Talaq in March and May.

He said the woman got married on February 22, 2009 as per Muslim rites and customs and has two children.

The bench asked the counsel as to why he did not move the high court for the relief.

To this, the counsel said the top court on August 17, 2017, held the practice of triple talaq among Muslims as unconstitutional and the notices given by the husband were violative of that order.

The woman, a Delhi resident, in her plea has said that her husband and in-laws started harassing and assaulting her after marriage demanding additional dowry and a car.

She said the first notice for talaq was sent to her on March 25 and the second notice was sent to her on May 7 by her husband.

The woman said the The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Ordinance, 2019, which was promulgated in January 12 is also in her favour.

She sought direction from the court to the authorities for registration of FIR against her husband.
