India's Supreme Court today permitted a Hindu woman who converted to Islam to live with her Muslim husband, a man federal investigators accused of being a recruiter for militant group Islamic State, in an incident they called "Love Jihad".
In November, the Supreme Court had said that Hadiya can leave her parents' house and go back to college in Tamil Nadu. "We can't stand in the (their) way", said Justice D Y Chandrachud as senior counsel Shyam Divan justified the Kerala High Court annulling Hadiya's marriage.
Hadiya is now pursuing her medical course from Shivaraj Homeopathy Medical College in Tamil Nadu's Salem after Supreme Court's direction in November, 2017. The SC bench restored her marriage with her husband Shafin Jahan.
The court however said that it would not interfere with NIA probe in the Love Jihad case.
In an affidavit filed in the apex court, the NIA said that it had conducted its investigation into the so-called "love jihad" case in a "fair, objective and impartial manner" based upon the evidence and material collected so far.

Earlier this week, Hadiya's father KM Asokan told the top court that his efforts prevented her from being transported to "extremist-controlled territories" of Syria to be used as a "sex slave or a human bomb".
Reacting to the Supreme Court verdict on Thursday, Hadiya's father said he "respects the court order but will seek legal recourse on the verdict".
She was however not allowed to unite with her husband.
The NIA was previously asked by the apex court to investigate allegations that the a terror angle was involved in Hadiya's conversion to Islam and subsequent marriage to Shefin Jahan.
An investigation was opened by the Supreme Court and she was summoned to testify if she was forced to convert. Her family, however, didn't allow her to live with him.
