Hadiya with her husband Shafin Jahan.
A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, in a brief operative order said it was restoring Hadiya and Jahan's marriage, as it had interacted with the former and found that she had exercised her consent in getting married. Kerala Love Jihad case victim, Hadiya (also known as Akhila) had on February 20, filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court and stated that she is a Muslim and wanted to remain as a Muslim. Hadiya told the court that she faced mental harassment in the past 11 months under the custody of her parents. "They (NIA) can not investigate into the marital status", the top court had observed.
The question was put to her as part of her deposition in the Supreme Court, which ordered the NIA, India's anti-terror probe agency, to probe the conspiracy of sham religious conversions of young women to Islam. Hadiya converted to Islam and married a Muslim man Shafi Jahan while studying.
