Christians prevented from preaching

Residents of Rajagopal Nagar in Herga village called up the Manipal police and complained about two persons whom they accused of religious conversion. The police arrived at the spot and took the duo Senata Peters Burpes (28) and Soumya (26) into custody. Upon inquiry it was learnt that they used to visit houses and indulge in proselytisation. Both were released later after obtaining a bond from them. Senata reportedly told the police that proselytisation was their fundamental right and they were not carrying out forcible conversions.
