A pastor independently runs a church in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, attended by 50 to 60 regular congregants. On 5th of July, as the pastor was baptising some of his church’s members on a beach located nearby, a person objected and complained to the police accusing the pastor of conducting illegal religious conversions. The pastor and some of the Christians who accompanied him to the beach were subsequently summoned to the police station for an inquiry.
