The Supreme Court of India on Thursday directs Kerala police to assist and hand over its investigation report to the National Investigating Agency (NIA) into a case where a marriage of a Hindu woman to a Muslim man after her conversion was annulled by the Kerala High Court as it amounted to ‘Love Jihad’.

 Petitioner Shafin Alam , who had asked from court to approached to his wife,  a bench headed by Chief Justice JS Khehar declined the demand.

“We want to know whether it is an isolated case in a small pocket or if it has wider ramifications. We don’t want to be in the grey area,” the bench, also comprising Justice DY Chandrachud, told the petitioner’s counsel Haris Beeran.

The directives came after NIA's plea  that said it cannot assist the bench without going through the documents related to the case.

Dissatisfied from the probe by Kerala police , the apex court wanted neutral and unbiased assistance into the matter.

Supreme Court bench said“Why should you oppose sharing records with the NIA? We want them to be here. If NIA says there are no issues of national importance, we will deal with this as an individual case but let the entire picture come before this Court,”.

The Kerala HC declared as “null and void” and described the case as an instance of ‘love jihad’ and ordered the state police to conduct a probe into such cases.
