Bhopal, June 30 : A Christian priest has been arrested for allegedly
abetting conversion by enticing people with promises of work in Madhya
Pradesh’s Badwani district, police said Monday.

“We
have been receiving complaints that priest Hatte Singh in Navalpur has
been luring poor people, promising them work and other benefits if they
adopted Christianity as their religion,” Vijay Sisodia, a police
official, told IANS over phone.

“The priest was held on Sunday
after members of a Hindu outfit complained to us. We raided his
residence in Navalpur and saw that he had collected about half a dozen
poor people who, according to the complainants, were brought for
conversion,” he said.

Singh has been arrested on similar charges earlier also.

Police said a case has been registered against the priest and the matter would be probed.
