Grocery store owner held for religious conversions in Hardoi | India News


LUCKNOW: Hardoi police on Wednesday arrested a 45-year-old grocery store owner, under the provisions of UP Prohibition of Unlawful Conversion of Religion Act on Wednesday. Police said Kamlesh Kumar had organized a ceremony at his house in Sandila on December 31 evening in the garb of a New Year’s eve party where he tried to ‘forcefully convert’ the guests to Christianity.
Last week, 23 people were arrested in UP’s Sitapur district for forcefully converting people to Christianity.
Incharge of Sandila police station, Inspector Dharmendra Giri, told ToI on Wednesday that Kamlesh, had organised a party at his house in Tikar Mazra which was attended by over 40 people.
“One of the guests, Bablu Dayal, told the police that Kamlesh first tried to convince everyone that Hindu religion was no good and later forced gullible locals to convert to Christianity,” Giri said. Dayal also told the police that Kamlesh also assured them regular financial help apart from jobs and employment, police said.
“We have arrested Kamlesh and will take him on remand and then inquire about his contacts, associations and also his property details,” Giri said. Police sources said the accused had associations with some pastors in Sitapur and frequently visited the district.
