In Uttar Pradesh, the action taken in Moradabad under the law declaring conversion to marriage is a crime and it is also being cited as an example of misuse of law.

A girl named Pinky was separated from her husband by the UP Police and sent to the women’s shelter center.

Pinky is the first woman to be separated from her husband under a controversial law brought to prevent inter-religious marriage in UP.

Pinky alleges that she was tortured and given an injection at the women’s shelter center, which led to her miscarriage.
