Jhansi (Uttar Pradesh): Two people have been arrested for breach of peace and misbehaviour in connection with last month’s alleged harassment of nuns here, police said Friday. The two nuns and two postulants were taken off an express train. They were detained for questioning by Railway Police here March 19. The detention happened after local Bajrang Dal activists complained that two women were allegedly being taken forcibly for religious conversion by the nuns.
During patrolling on the station Thursday night, SHO, GRP, Sunil Kumar Singh got information that two persons were arguing with policemen near the booking hall,” Circle officer, Government Railway Police (GRP), Neem Khan Mansuri said Friday. They were threatening to launch an agitation. They claimed that police did not act properly and let the nuns go, he said.
No action had been taken against these two earlier in the case, Mansuri stated. However, after this, Anchal Arjaria and Purukes Amraya, both members of a Hindu outfit, were arrested for breach of peace and their role in misbehaving with the nuns, Mansuri added.
After the issue of the nuns being forced off the train came to light last month, the police had said there was no basis in the complaint by the Bajrang Dal activists. All the four women later took the next train to their destination in Odisha.
