India's top court has ruled the practice of instant divorce in Islam unconstitutional, marking a major victory for women's rights activists.

The landmark court decision came after it considered petitions challenging the so-called "triple talaq" custom.

The cases have been filed by five Muslim women who had been divorced this way and two rights groups.
