SC sends Hadiya to Salem to pursue her studies

The Supreme Court on Monday spoke to a Kerala woman in the alleged ‘love-jihad’ case and sent her to Salem in Tamil Nadu to enable her pursue homoeopathic studies.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra directed the Kerala police to provide Hadiya with security and ensure that she travelled to Salem at the earliest.

The apex court appointed the dean of the Salem-based homoeopathic college as Hadiya’s guardian and granted him liberty to approach it in case of any problem.

Hadiya has been staying at her parental home for several weeks.

The bench, also comprising Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud, directed the college and the university to re-admit Hadiya and grant her hostel facilities.

During the hearing which went for over-two hours, the woman said she wanted to go with her husband Shafin Jahan.

The top court fixed the hearing on Jahan’s plea against Kerala HC order annulling his marriage with Hadiya to third week of January next year.

Jahan had on September 20 approached the apex court seeking recall of its order directing the NIA to investigate the controversial case of conversion and marriage of a Hindu woman with him.

The Kerala High Court had annulled the marriage terming it as an instance of ‘love jihad’, following which he had approached the apex court.
