SALEM: She joined there as Akhila Asokan, but soon became Hadiya. Her fight for ‘freedom’ began here, before it reached the Supreme Court’s corridors a few months ago. The focus is now back on the Sivaraj Homeopathy Medical College and Research Institute near Siddhar Kovil in the district, where Hadiya will continue her studies, with the Supreme Court allowing her to pursue the rest of the course on Monday.

Akhila, who studied Bachelor of Homeopathy in Medical Science in the college, had completed her four-and-a-half-year course before returning to Kerala. However, she was yet to complete her internship.
Later, she converted to Islam and became Hadiya.While allowing her to pursue studies, the Supreme Court on Monday directed the Kerala Police to provide security to her and ensure that she travelled to Salem at the earliest. The court also appointed the college dean as her guardian.

When Express contacted college dean Kannan, he said Akhila Ashokan did not do her one-year internship in the college.He said the student will be admitted in the college hostel. “There is no problem in her rejoining to complete internship. Supreme Court has appointed me as her guardian,” Kannan said.
