But a NIA officer says it will need to go beyond establishing a link between people connected to the PFI after converting the partner to Islam and the inter-faith marriages.
The central agency is scrutinising over 30 cases in Kerala where Hindu women were allegedly lured, forced to convert to Islam and marry Muslim men.
Their families, however, feel that there is a ploy to convert them.
"Is it fair or right for the Kerala government to move the Supreme Court to say that you don't allow the NIA, we are doing our job?"
The state police have referred over 94 inter-faith marriage cases to NIA.
The government told the top court that the claims made by the National Investigation Agency that there was a "pattern" in the way religious conversions were taking place in Kerala were false. She also has given a statement that she was influenced by Zakir Naik videos on Islam and observing her Muslim friends.
The affidavit by the Kerala government comes days after the Supreme Court observed that "a father can't dictate life of a 24-year-old daughter" while hearing the "Love Jihad" case.
As told by a source, the other woman had eloped with a Muslim man and converted herself to Islam to the nuptial knot with him.
"Four months ago, the Kerala High Court" had sent Hadiya with her parents K M Asokan and Ponnamma after annulling her marriage with Shafin Jahan. In both these cases NIA suspects the role of Popular Front of India (PFI) and Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI).
The role of Malappuram Sainaba A.S, president of PFI's women's wing, the National Women's Front (NWF) is being probed in the Athira and Hadiya cases.
Shafeen Jahan married Akhila Ashokan in December past year after she converted to Islam and rechristened herself as Hadiya. One theme which has particularly fuelled the concern is what is called "love jihad", a coinage for the alleged luring of Hindu girls by Muslim boys, trapping them in love and marriage.
Christian Help Line of Kochi, submitted that more than 1,500 Christian girls were converted to Islam through "love jihad" till date. The court also ordered that she be kept in the custody of her father, who had opposed the marriage.
