The Mahoba police arrested a man for allegedly luring people for conversion.
The arrested person has been identified as Ashish John, a resident of Alipura in the Panwadi area, who had tried to convert several people by luring them financially.
Ashish had converted to Christianity about 20 years ago.
The office-bearers of several right-wing outfits had complained about Ashish’s activities and had demanded action against him.
The accused was arrested on Sunday and booked under sections 3 and 5 of the Uttar Pradesh Prohibition of Unlawful Conversion of Religion Ordinance, 2020.
