Three volunteers of Gospel Echoing Missionary Society (GEMS) were arrested from village Motwa near Satna for allegedly converting the local people to Christianity on a complaint from right-wing activists who reportedly accompanied the police when the arrests were made late on Saturday.
Stephen Rajkumar, Harilal and Anil were released on bail on Sunday by a local magistrate.
Majhagawan Police Station in-charge Khem Singh told The Indian Express that statements of few women have been recorded who were cured of various ailments during medical camps organized by the Society. The women said they had converted to Christianity recently.
Singh said the police had received a complaint from one Rajaram Sahu that the missionaries were converting people in a school in the guise of offering prayers. The 25-year-old complainant alleged that potential converts were made to take a bath and asked to read the Bible.
