The 25-year-old woman, who was divorced three months ago through triple talaq, committed suicide on August 28 after her husband reportedly circulated an obscene video of her on social media, police had said on Sunday.

Before she took the extreme step, she had reported that the police were not taking any action against her husband on her compliant.

Deepak Chaturvedi had said Sunday, when he was still the SHO, the couple got married four years ago and had an 18-month-old son.

Police had also said the accused divorced his wife by pronouncing triple talaq three months ago following which she moved in with her parents in Kishanpur village along with the child, they said.

In a police complaint lodged on August 18, the woman accused her husband of giving instant triple talaq and forcibly taking away their son from her.

While the police were investigating the matter, an obscene video of the woman was circulated on social media by her husband, they said, adding the woman ended her life by consuming poison.
