THIRUVANATHAPURAM: Bharatiya Janata Mahila Morcha state president Sobha Surendran has urged the authorities to order a probe by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) into the ‘love jihad’ cases.

She told a news conference here on Saturday that over the past five years, around 5,000 girls had  gone missing in the State. Many of them were recruited by terrorist outfits sponsored by the ISI and sent to Pakistan. But the Home Department told the High Court in an affidavit that no such activities were noticed in the State, she said.

The Police had seized some CDs during the raids conducted as part of the investigation into the chopping of the hand of Newman College teacher T J Joseph. These CDs had visuals of girls sent to red streets in Pakistan. But the Kerala Police is maintaining silence over this development, despite having registered over 1,000 cases related to ‘love jihad’. Sobha Surendran said that ‘love jihad’ was a planned move to recruit girls for terrorist activities. She said that as the Home Department was functioning under a tacit understanding with the Popular Front of India (PFI), the Union Home Department should take up the cases. The raids on the houses of PFI workers were a farce.

Crores of rupees were spent by the PFI activists to sabotage the investigation. She alleged that Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan had a tacit understanding with the PFI leaders and hence allowed to organise freedom parades.
