Today's order came as a huge relief to the couple who will be deemed legally married and can live together normally.
In the affidavit, Hadiya has categorically stated that she had embraced Islam and married Shafin Jahan on her free will.
Jahan was questioned a week after the Apex Court gave its nod to carry on investigation into the conversion of Hadiya and her marriage with him.
Hadiya was brought to the Sivaraj Homeopathy Medical College amid tight security by Kerala police from Coimbatore, about 170 kms from Salem last night.
Kerala 'Love Jihad' case: Hadiya freed from parents' custody, directed by Supreme Court to finish her studies
The Supreme Court today freed Hadiya from her parents' custody and has appointed the Homeopathy college dean as her guardian in the Kerala 'love jihad' case.
Hadiya’s mental stability doubtful, statement cannot be taken at face value: Father’s lawyer Rajendran
Hadiya’s statement cannot be taken at its face value, said her father’s lawyer Rajendran on Sunday, claiming that her mental stability was doubtful and that she was made to say so.
Shafin Jahan, husband of Hadiya on Saturday filed a complaint with the Kottayam police stating that attempts are being made to reconvert his wife to Hinduism ahead of her appearance in the SC.
Hadiya was whisked away by her parents and security personnel to board a flight to Delhi and is likely to stay at Kerala House, ahead of her appearance in the Supreme Court on November 27.
Twenty-four-year-old Hadiya is currently living with her parents here, who have alleged that her marriage to a Muslim man is a case of ‘love jihad’.
The National Commission for Women (NCW) Chairperson incharge Rekha Sharma on Monday said Hadiya’s case was not a ‘Love Jihad’ incident, but forced conversion.
The Additional Solicitor General submitted that this was a case in which the woman has been indoctrinated and hence the court can invoke parental authority even if she was a major.
Hadiya's father denied his daughter was under house arrest and said he will produce her before the Supreme Court on November 27 as directed.
The SC bench asked advocate Shyam Divan, representing the father of the woman, to ensure that she is produced that day for interaction with the bench, which is likely to ascertain her mental stage.
