AGRA: Mathura police arrested seven Christian preachers on Monday night for allegedly carrying out a "forcible conversion campaign" in a village in the district. The arrested preachers were produced in court on Tuesday and remanded in judicial custody for 14 days.
According to some villagers, the missionaries have been active in the area, Irauli Gurjar, for the past one month and have been distributing Bible to residents. One of them alleged that since no one was paying heed to their pleas, on Monday night they turned aggressive and tried to "forcibly convert" some schedule caste families. Around 700 people from SC groups reside in the village.
