Adhila Nassrin and Fathima Noora, a lesbian of Kerala, were together since school time in Saudi, and when they finally decided to move together while in Kerala, but their families opposed their decision and abducted them. Later on, the couple lived in Kozhikode under the support and protection of Vanaja Collective, a Kozhikode-based NGO. Adhila, a while back used online networking to publicize her same-sex relation with Fathima. She claimed that not only had her friend's family forcibly taken her, but also that the police had executed nothing to bring her back. Even so, a senior Aluva police officer asserted that police forces had decided to intervene in the issue from the starting but that the other woman - a Kozhikode native - had given written consent to leave with her parents. During the previous hearing, the court ordered the respondents to ensure Fathima's personal appearance before it on Tuesday, according to The Bar and Bench. When the case was called, Fathima, who was present in court, expressed her desire to accompany Adhila.
