A man in Gujarat's Valsad district has been booked for allegedly giving triple talaq, prohibited by law, to his wife through a WhatsApp message, police said on Monday.

An official identified the accused as Jailun Javed Kalia (27) and said he has sent the divorce message to his father Javed Kalia a few days ago.

"The victim, a 25-year-old woman now residing with her parents in Umargam town in Valsad, filed a complaint on Sunday. Jailun, a resident of Sanjan, works in a shipping firm and is currently abroad," said Inspector P M Parmar of Umargam police station.

"Upon getting the divorce message from his son, Javed Kalia took a print-out and approached a cleric to formalise the separation," he said.

The cleric informed the victim's parents, who, along with their daughter, approached the police. The couple were married four years ago and have a three-year-old son, he said, adding that the victim has complained that she was tortured in her marital house.
