Kerala ‘Love Jihad’ case: NIA grills Husband Shafin for four hours

Kochi: After the apex court’s decision in the nation-wide controversial Kerala’s “love-Jihad” case, Hadiya’s husband Shafin Jahan was grilled by the probing National Investigation Agency (NIA) today.

Shafi Jahan was called to NIA headquarters in Kochi on Monday evening where he was grilled for over four hours in his alleged connection with the ISIS.

According to the ongoing probe by the NIA, Shafin Jahan is accused of having alleged connections with two ISIS members Manseed and P Safvan, accused in the Omar-al-Hindi case, through Facebook group Popular Front of India (PFI) which allegedly deals with activities of SDPI.

The Omar-al-Hindi case pertains to a conspiracy by the IS inspired group which targets Judiciary, Political leaders and police cops in South India and Jahan is alleged to have his connections with the duo arrested in October which led to his marriage with Hadiya.

So far the probe has revealed that Jahan was in touch with duo through a common friend Muneer known as Sainaba who is also Hadiya’s appointed guardian.

Speaking to Times Now, Hadiya’s father furious over Hadiya’s conversion to Islam has claimed vindication.He had reportedly approached the court alleging the marriage as forceful and a case of love jihad. He told, “Let the probe happen, I am not in a position to say anything. But one thing I can say, he is not an innocent man. If he is indeed innocent, then why would NIA probe him? I was also made aware of alleged terror links and I am sure the probe will bring out the truth.”

Hadiya’s father is alleging Hadiya’s husband Jahan as a “radicalised man” who has links with the recruiter for ISIS.

Hadiya who has been in her parents’ custody for six months after Kerala High Court had annulled her marriage with her husband Shafi Jahan, terming it as an instance of ‘love jihad’ on May 29 was recently moved to Salem in Tamil Nadu to continue her studies after Apex Court’s order. Shafi Jahan grieved with Kerala High Court’s order approached the apex court who will continue the case hearing from January 2018.
