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

UP police had separated the girl named Pinky from her husband and sent her to a women’s shelter.

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

Pinky alleges she was tortured and given an injection at a women’s shelter that caused her miscarriage.
