LUCKNOW: Close on the heels of alleged illegal conversions in Sitapur, five persons were booked in Ambedkarnagar district on Saturday for forcibly converting villagers to Christianity.
Police said local residents informed them that a mass was organised in Mahmudpur Chapra village where the members of two families were being converted to Christianity. Station officer, Mahruaa, Gajendra Vikram Singh, said that a villager, Siyaram, alleged that three persons, Raj Kumar, Botal and Ranjeet, visited him on January 5 and asked him to reach the house of one Chhavilal Nishad on January 6.
“We reached Nishad’s house and found that some other villagers were also there. We were asked to embrace Christianity and shun Hinduism. The accused also used derogatory words against our religion. I left the spot and informed the police,” Siyaram informed the police.
