PATNA: A man in Bihar is adamant on handing out divorce to his newly-wed wife since she is not fair-complexioned. The matter has been reported to the state women commission.
Reports said Noorsabba Khatoon, a resident of Ara town in Bhojpur district, had been married with Snauwar Ansari from neighbouring Buxur district in November 2017.
She returned her parents’ home about a month after staying with the in-laws after marriage.
According to the complainant, sometime later when she called up her husband, the latter refused to stay with her saying she is dark complexioned and not the one her family had shown them before the wedding.
“The wedding was solemnized after keeping us in dark. We were told she is fair complexioned but after marriage we found that she is dark,” Ansari told the state women commission members during hearing of the case on Monday.
“I don’t want to stay with her,” he declared. The women commission is counseling them to stay together.
