Love Jihad cases suspected in Karnataka

Just as in the cases of Kerala, two cases in Karnataka were also brought to the court under Habeas Corpus notification by the girls’ parents.

Selvaraj, a resident of Chamarajanagar, filed the petition saying his daughter Siljaraj had gone missing on Aug. 8 and he was later informed that certain Askar of Kannur in Kerala had married her after she had converted to Islam.

He also said in his petition he was prevented from meeting his daughter since she was attending madrassa classes in Kannur to learn about her new religion.
The petitioner said he filed the petition when his second attempt to meet his daughter failed even after he went with police escort.
