New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered a probe into the conversion and marriage of a Hindu girl from Kerala to National Investigation Agency (NIA) in Kerala. Judge of the Supreme Court Justice R. V. Raveendran will monitor the investigation. Chief Justice Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar and Justice D.Y. A bench of the Chandrachud, ordering an inquiry into the matter, before the final decision, told the court that the girl needed the muscle.
The bench said that the court will take the decision only after taking the details of NIA, Kerala government and all others in this matter. The court gave this order after petitioner Shafin, the lawyer of Kapil Sibal, saying that the court should take a decision only after talking to the girl. The Kerala High Court has canceled the marriage of the girl who converted the religion. The petitioner, where the High Court has challenged the verdict in the apex court Senior Advocate Indira Jaising said to the bench that this is an inter-religious matter, so the court should take precautions in it.
What is the matter?
Akhila’s father, KM Ashokan, filed a petition in the High Court alleging that Muslin Youth Shuffin seduced his daughter and converted her first religion and then married. He accused the Shafin and said that he is pressurizing his daughter to join the ISIS. On this basis, Ashokan had filed a petition in the High Court to break this marriage.
After that, the High Court ruled that marriage is the most important decision of life and should seek the advice of his parents in it. The court said that the alleged marriage is a nonsense and it has no significance in the eyes of the law. The High Court directed Kottayam District Police to protect Ashokan’s daughter, Akhila.
So far, on the order of the Akhila court staying in the female hostel, she will now be able to live with her father Ashokan. The court also ordered the police to investigate the case. However, Akhila had said before the court that he had accepted Muslim religion at his own will.
