UP govt registers first case under anti-conversion law

Nov 29, 2020 16:00 IST

Uttar Pradesh has registered its first case under the new anti-conversion law in Bareilly district on a complaint from the father of a young woman. The case was registered at the Devarniyan police station in Bareilly district on Saturday. In a statement the BJP-led government said that a case was registered by Tikaram, a resident of Sharif Nagar village, who accused a man - Uvaish Ahmed - of the same village of trying to convert his daughter through ‘allurement’. On Saturday, Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel gave assent to an ordinance against forcible or fraudulent religious conversions that provides for imprisonment up to 10 years and a maximum fine of ₹50,000 under different categories.
