In Uttar Pradesh, in Moradabad, it is an offense to declare a conversion of a marriage under law and an example of misuse of the law is being given.

UP police separated a girl 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 a controversial law brought to prevent inter-religious marriage in UP.

Pinky alleges she was tortured and injected into a women’s shelter so she had an abortion.
