New Delhi [India], Nov. 27 (ANI): Expressing happiness over Supreme Court's order, Sheffin Jahan, husband of Hadiya on Monday said his stand has been vindicated.

"My stand has been vindicated. I am very happy," Sheffin told the reporters.

Earlier in the day, the top court directed Hadiya, who, currently, is in the custody of her parents, be taken to college for her studies and that college should allow facility of hostel to her.

The court also ordered Hadiya's college dean to be her guardian after she requested for it.

This decision was taken after the court interviewed Hadiya in the 'love jihad' case, where she told the Supreme Court that she wanted to be with her husband.

The 24-year-old has been in the headlines after she became a Muslim following her marriage to Jahan.

Hadiya said she had married Jahan out of her own will and not forcibly.

The apex court will now hear the matter next in third week of January.

Earlier, the NIA had submitted a status report in a sealed cover to the top court in connection with the case.

The apex court has been hearing Hadiya's case after Jahan approached the top court following Kerala High Court annulling his marriage with Hadiya.

While Hadiya's parents have been alleging that her marriage was a case of love jihad and that she was converted to Islam forcibly, Hadiya has refuted these claims so far. (ANI)
