Divorced while asleep

From Al-Jazeera: “A Muslim couple in India have been told by local Islamic leaders that they must separate after the husband ‘divorced’ his wife in his sleep. The Press Trust of India said in a report published on Monday that Sohela Ansari had told friends that her husband Aftab had uttered the word ‘talaq,’ or divorce, three times in his sleep. When local Islamic leaders heard about the incident, they said Aftab's words constituted a divorce under an Islamic procedure known as ‘triple talaq’.” (link)
