Chhattisgarh police arrested four pastors on 3 May in Bhelwa Baddhara, Jashpur after alleged Hindu extremists accused them of forceful conversion and filed a police complaint against them.

On the same day, ten local believers testified at the police station that they decided to follow Christ by their own free choice.

However, the pastors were charged with sections 151 of the Indian Penal Code for knowingly joining or continuing in assembly of five or more persons after it has been commanded to disperse. They were released on bail the same day after the intervention of area Christian leaders.
