Citing conversion, Bajrang dal goons pull out five women from train

Bhopal: Bajrang Dal activists on Tuesday pulled five women including a minor and a nun out of a train in Madhya Pradesh on suspicion that they were being trafficked for conversion.

The women were Christians and were reportedly coming from Jharkhand to Bhopal to join a coaching centre to learn English.

Some passengers informed the saffron activists about the alleged “religious conversion in exchange of money”.

Therefore, when Indore-bound train reached Satna station, scores of Hindutva activists — including members of Matrushakti, VHP women’s wing, and Bajrang Dal made the women get off Shipra Express.

Following the reports from Right-wing men, the Satna government railway police (GRP) also rushed the station and detained the nun and four girls.

They were interrogated at district collector’s office for over 12 hours to inquire about the real incident and were released after their statements were recorded before the SDM, GRP Satna police station in-charge, SR Bagri told TOI.
