NIA To Probe Forced Conversion Of Kerala Woman Bid To Take Her To Syria

NIA has taken over to investigate Kerala forced conversion case today.

Kochi: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has taken over the probe into the controversial religious conversion case of Akshara Bose, a woman from Pathanamthitta who had moved the Kerala High Court against her husband.

The Centre told the Kerala High Court that given the seriousness of the alleged offence, the government suo motu entrusted the investigation into the case with the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

The 25-year-old woman, belonging to a family from Kerala but settled in Jamnagar in Gujarat, had met Riyas in 2014 in Bengaluru, where they were studying.

The NIA had earlier informed the HC that it was ready to probe the case if directed by the court. She had filed a petition against her husband, Mohammed Riyas from Peringadi in New Mahi.

The complaint was earlier probed by Ernakulam police, which arrested two persons who had allegedly helped a youth named Muhammed Riyas, a native of Kannur, to convert the woman to Islam. The lady had alleged that she was forcibly converted, tricked into marriage following which her husband attempted to sell her off as a sex slave in Syria. And her petition alleged that later on Riyas blackmailed her with the video of private moments and asked her to marry him in November 2015.

The petition also said that Riyas used fake documents to get an Aadhaar card using which the May 21, 2016, marriage was registered. She was forced to listen to Zakir Naik, the controversial Islamic preacher and founder of Mumbai-based NGO Islamic Research Foundation. Scared of Riyas, she shifted to Ahmedabad on October 15, 2016, from Bengaluru. However, Kerala High court declared her marriage null and void but the apex court said that NIA can not probe her marital status. However, the Kerala HC had declared the marriage null and void, following which her husband moved the Supreme Court.
