The police of Kiriburu area said, “We had brought Karim to the police station after his two wives objected to his third wedding. We told him about the legal consequences of his actions and eventually he agreed to stay with the two existing wives. We released him afterwards.”
The police also said that Karim was under pressure from his mother to have a third wedding.
The first wife of Karim hails from Noamandi, and the second one is from a tribal community of Kumirta village. The two wives have stated that they have no problem and are ready to live altogether if the husband drops the third wedding plan.
