It had then said that the court would talk to her after the NIA probe was over.

Speaking to reporters in Kottayam after the court's order, Asokan, the father of Hadiya, denied that his daughter was under house arrest and said he will produce her before the Supreme Court on November 27 as directed.

Misra, however, assured the father that she would not be immediately sent back to her husband.

The woman, a Hindu, had converted to Islam and later married Jahan.

Her father, KM Ashokan, angered by his daughter's decision, had petitioned the Kerala High Court, alleging that his daughter had been forcibly converted and was being held against her will. The Kerala high court had curiously annulled the marriage and handed her over to her father, and a NIA investigation ordered by the Supreme Court before the bench, which included the Chief Justice, spotted the clearer path to justice. Her inter-faith marriage to a Muslim man was annulled by the state High Court describing it to be a case of "Love-Jihad".

"The Hadiya case is fast emerging as one case I have been watching with growing discomfort and anger", said activist Harnidh Kaur. The arguments were countered by equally pointed, often curt, observations by the apex court bench.

The National Investigation Agency, represented by Additional Solicitor General Maninder Singh, said there was well-oiled machinery working in the state and they are indulging in the indoctrination and radicalisation of the society in the state where as many as 89 cases of similar nature have been reported.

"You need to get me out". My father is getting angry, I can make out. "When I walk, he is pushing and kicking me", Hadiya says in the video. In a recent video made by social activist Rahul Eashwar in Kochi, Hadiya had said that her father was ill-treating her and that there was a threat to her life.

Women's rights groups, including the Kerala Women's Commission, have asked for a police probe into Hadiya's present living conditions.
