Ker­ala de­nies NIA claim on love ji­had

Sunday Express - - FRONT PAGE - @ New Delhi

THE Ker­ala gov­ern­ment on Sat­ur­day re­jected the claims of the Na­tional In­ves­ti­ga­tion Agency (NIA) in the Supreme Court that the love ji­had case is part of a pat­tern of re­li­gious con­ver­sions and rad­i­cal­i­sa­tion hap­pen­ing in the state.

A gov­ern­ment af­fi­davit con­tended that a Spe­cial In­ves­ti­ga­tion Team (SIT) of Ker­ala Po­lice had con­ducted de­tailed in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the con­ver­sion of the 24-year-old Hindu woman and her mar­riage to a Mus­lim man and found no ma­te­rial to sup­port the claims made by NIA.

“The in­ves­ti­ga­tion con­ducted so far by the Ker­ala po­lice has not re­vealed any in­ci­dent re­lat­ing to com­mis­sion of any sched­uled of­fences to make a re­port to the Cen­tral gov­ern­ment un­der Sec­tion 6 of the NIA Act,” the af­fi­davit filed by Subrata Biswas, the Ad­di­tional Chief Sec­re­tary, Home De­part­ment, stated.
