Kerala woman Hadiya, who has to depose before the Supreme Court on November 27 in an alleged 'love jihad' case, on Saturday said she wanted to be with her husband. Chaotic scenes prevailed as mediapersons, who tried to approach her, jostled with the cops after she reached the airport in Nedumbassery amid tight security. "I am a Muslim. I was not forced. I want to be with my husband," the 25-year-old shouted as she was being taken inside the airport.
