The Bareilly administration has decided to step up the security of social activist Nida Khan, who had come out in support of a nikah halala victim in the district.

The security of Khan, who belongs to the famous Ala Hazrat family and is the chairperson of Ala Hazrat Helping Society, has been stepped up and she will now get two gunners instead of one, Senior Superintendent of Police Muniraj G said.

The decision has been taken in view of an attack planned on Khan in Baankhana area on July 16, when she had gone there in support of the halala victim and SP City Abhinandan Singh had to rush there for her safety.

The incident regarding the 28-year-old triple talaq and

halala victim had come to light when she and Khan had met the SSP Singh and complained him about her father-in-law.

An FIR was registered after the complaint.

The victim had alleged that after her husband gave her instant divorce using the triple talaq practice, she was forced to enter into halala with her father-in-law, who raped her.

She alleged that after solemnising nikah with her husband again, the father-in-law continued to rape her and when she tried to resist, her husband again gave her talaq.

The in-laws, the victim said, forced her for halala this time with her brother-in-law after which she fled from there to her parents.

A cleric had issued a fatwa against Khan for allegedly taking up issues such as triple talaq and nikah halala.

At a press conference in Bareilly, Shahar Imam Mufti Khurshid Alam had said the fatwa against Khan was issued for speaking against Islam and its practices.

Meanwhile, a two-member team of State Minority Commission comprising Rumana Siddiqui and Kunwar Iqbal Haider visited the district yesterday and took feedback from various sources in connection with the fatwa throwing Khan out of Islam.
