A 25-year-old woman from Uttar Pradesh has revealed that she was gangraped by her neighbours. According to reports, the victim's husband, a Muslim man living in Dubai, UAE, divorced her over texts after learning of the crime.

The husband, who is a construction worker in Dubai, reportedly sent the woman a text which read talaq, talaq, talaq, in keeping with a controversial Islamic law that allows a husband to divorce her wife if he says talaq (divorce) thrice.

The victim, who lives with her son and her in-laws in Uttar Pradesh, was asked to leave her in-laws house after she received the text. Her husband's family also took custody of her son.
