State police detained five Christians in Bagli police station, Dewas after the local Hindu extremists filed a complaint against them of forceful conversion on 24 March.

It was reported that Pastor Murli and local believers were constructing children learning centre and helping the local children with tuition classes when the Hindu extremists accused them of forceful conversion.

“Through this project, the children were given tuition classes in the partially finished construction.” reported a local church leader.

The police summoned the local believers to the police station and detained them. However, after an inquiry, the Christians were released without further charges.

“Tuition classes were stopped after the incident.” reported our correspondent.
