Lucknow : A wife and a mother of a 5 year old girl was burnt alive by her husband and in-laws in an Uttar Pradesh village after she went to the police complaining against her husband for giving her triple talaq. The police had sent her back without registering a complaint and asked her to stay with her husband.
