Kottayam (Kerala) [India], Nov 25 (ANI): Sheffin Jahan, husband of Hadiya, on Saturday filed a complaint with the police alleging that attempts are being made to reconvert his wife to Hinduism, ahead of her appearance in the Supreme Court.

Sheffin claimed that his wife, who is scheduled to appear before the apex court on Monday, was counseled by a religious teacher for over three hours to change her religion back to Hinduism.

On Thursday, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) had filed a sealed report in the Supreme Court in connection with the case.

24-year-old Hadiya recently converetd to Islam after her marriage to Shafin Jahan.

Hadiya is now with her parents, who have alleged that her marriage to a Muslim man is a case of so-called 'love jihad'.

The case is under the consideration of the top court, which had ordered the NIA to look into it.

In September, Jahan had filed a plea in the court to call off the NIA probe, alleging the investigation agency of being unfair. (ANI)
