The woman further alleged that she was tortured by her inlaws for dowry during her stay at their house. “Later my husband asked me to stay with my parents and I became the mother of a baby boy. After delivery I called up my husband and asked him to take me to Hyderabad where he is employed at a private firm, he denied recognising me. When I insisted him he pronounced talaq over the phone,’ the woman alleged.
