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

UP police separated a young woman named Pinky from her husband and sent her to a women’s shelter.

Pinki is the first woman to be separated from her husband under controversial legislation brought to prevent inter-religious marriages in UP.

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