Found no offences requiring NIA probe: Kerala tells SC on Hadiya case

New Delhi: The Kerala government has informed the Supreme court that there exists no situation requiring a National Investigation Agency (NIA) probe in the Hadiya case.

The police have investigated the whole aspects of the case in detail and the crime branch probe is satisfying, government said in an affidavit submitted at the court.

The state government’s stand was made clear at the apex court while considering the petition submitted by Shefin Jahan, who married Hadiya, seeking recall of its earlier order by which NIA was asked to probe whether there was a wider pattern of alleged ‘love jihad’ in the case.

If the case had required an NIA probe, the state would have informed the Centre, the written document said.
