SC restores marriage of Kerala Girl Hadiya

New Delhi:A three judge SC bench comprising of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud ,today restored the marriage of Kerala girl Hadiya  to a Muslim man by setting aside the Kerala  High Court order annulling her marriage .In a ruling given in May last year the High Court had annulled the marriage terming it the case of love jihad.

However the Supreme Court said that the National Investigation Agency which was asked by it in August 2017 to carry out a probe in the trend of love jihad in the state ,may continue its investigation in the matter.

The matter reached SC when when Shafin Jahan, Hadiya’s husband, had challenged a Kerala high court order  annulling his marriage to her and sending the woman to her parent’s custody.

In an order given last year on November 27,the SC had freed Hadiya from her parents’ custody and sent her to college to pursue her studies, even as she had pleaded that she should be allowed to go to her husband.
