According to a complaint filed by Mohd Mustaquddin's wife, he traveled to India with his wife and a 10-month-old child during September. He left them in Hyderabad and returned back to Saudi Arabia and placed the advert in the newspaper.

The police have registered a case against the accused under sections 498 (A) (husband or relative of husband subjecting a woman to cruelty), 420 (cheating) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).  The Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP, South zone), V. Satyanarayana was quoted saying that a case has been registered against Qazi (Muslim cleric) of Shahalibanda, advocate Shakeel and Manaziruddin’s family.

Even after the Indian Supreme Court banned "triple talaq," muslim women continue to face the challenge. On August 22 this year, the Supreme Court ruled that the practice of divorce through triple talaq (instant triple talaq) among Muslims as "void", "illegal" and "unconstitutional".
