Triple Talaq victim and mother of a six year old infant, died on Tuesday morning in Bareilly during her medical treatment.
Raziya was given divorced by her husband Nahim, over the phone. She was locked inside the house for more than a month, hungry and thirsty, and even thrashed by her husband. Married for 13 years to Nahim, Raziya was brutally tortured by her husband for dowry.
Raziya had approached to many, pleading for justice but was ignored. It was Farhat Naqvi, sister of Mukhtar Naqvi and founder of NGO – Mera Haq, who came in forefront to assist the victimised Raziya and get her medical aid.
Over the demise of Raziya, Farhat Naqvi said,
“Raziya was assaulted and whipped by her husband using an iron rod. Firstly she was divorced over phone and later, kept hungry, locked in a room for over a month. Such a heinous crime calls for immediate justice.”
