The men were teaching a discipleship lesson to 18 believers when members of the Hindutva youth movement interrupted their class and accused them of converting people by allurement.
Police held the entire group overnight, releasing everyone but the pastors and two other believers the following morning.
A local newspaper published the story as ‘Conversion Racket Exposed’ reporting that the two pastors had been converting Hindus from the area for the past 13 years and that police had sealed their office. The children of the imprisoned Christians have been left without means of support.
