New Delhi: A day before the Supreme Court hearing in the controversial Love Jihad Case, the Kerala House in Delhi has turned into a fortress on the arrival of a new guest.

Hadiya, earlier known as Akhila, whose conversion to Islam and subsequent marriage to Shafin Jahan created a furor in the country, touched down in Delhi on Saturday night.

A Kerala police team is accompanying Hadiya and her family members, CNN-News18 has learned.

Sources also said that an entire floor has been blocked for Hadiya, and 2-3 rooms have been booked for her and her family to stay. Delhi Police are also on alert for additional security.

Hadiya on Saturday had said that she was a Muslim and nobody forced her to convert to Islam.

Speaking to reporters at the Kochi Airport, Hadiya said that she wanted to go back to her husband.

Hadiya's husband, Shafin Jahan, had on Friday complained that attempts were being made to reconvert her to Hinduism.

Hadiya has told the National Investigation Agency (NIA) that she married Shafin Jahan of her own accord.

However, the NIA, in its report to the Supreme Court, is likely to maintain that Islamic indoctrination leading to marriages is a pattern in Kerala.

The Supreme Court has agreed to examine Hadiya in an open court, turning down her father’s plea for in-camera proceedings.
