3/30/2017 India (Times of India) – Six men hailing from Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh were arrested by police on Wednesday on the charges of forcing a woman to convert to Christianity.

The incident took place in Gopalpura village under Shamshabad police jurisdiction on Wednesday. The accused were identified as Michale of Icchapur in Chattisgarh, Sanjay Lodhi of Balaghat in Madhya Pradesh, Brijesh Jaatav from Kashmiri Gate in Hathras district, Suraj Balmiki of Rakabganj, Sundar Singh Jaatav of Nagla Ajeet and Mahesh Chand Jaatav of Shahganj in Agra.

The men were arrested after a man identified as Bablu Jaatav, a resident of Gopalpur village, alleged that six Christians had been visiting his sister-in-law’s home in the absence of his elder brother to offer prayers and persuade her to adopt other religion.

On Wednesday, when the six men came to Bablu’s sister-in-law’s house, he raised an alarm and called the villagers. Later, they handed them over to police.
