It had then said that the court would talk to her after the NIA probe was over.

The direction by the apex court for producing the woman for an interaction in an open court came amid an assertion by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) that an indoctrinated person may be incapable of giving free consent to marriage.

SC refused plea of Hadiya's father for holding of in-camera proceedings on November 27th. The marriage of Akhila Ashokan, who had converted to Islam and changed her name to Hadiya, to Shafin Jahan was annulled by the Kerala High Court.

According to Live Law, the Bench comprising Justice AK Sikri and Justice Ashok Bhushan said, "The controversy over Aadhaar needs examination but state government can't file petition against a law passed by Parliament". On her father's claim, the Kerala High Court had accepted that Shafin Jahan has links with terror-outfits. During earlier hearings, the Supreme Court had not quite put its finger on the nub as it did Monday, when it said Hadiya, the woman at the centre of the "love jihad" row, was 24, and hence in a position to state if she married of her own free will, or not. "If we suspect any indoctrination, this court has powers to direct her detailed examination by appropriate authorities". "She is not a small kid to force her to go out", he said.

The concept of love jihad involved referred to an emerging pattern of Hindu women being lured by Muslim men who were allegedly agents of terrorist groups looking for recruits.

The top court asked the father to produce Hadiya on November 27, the next date of hearing in the case. "Let the NIA continue its probe".

She said that the case paints an entire minority community as "aggressors and manipulators", referring to allegations of "Love Jihad".

"You need to get me out". I am sure I will be killed tomorrow or day after. I know my father is getting angry. "I hope that things will turn out positive after Hadiya's hearing", Shafin Jahan told India Today. In a recent video made by social activist Rahul Eashwar in Kochi, Hadiya had said that her father was ill-treating her and that there was a threat to her life.
