UP religious conversion case: Uttar Pradesh's Anti-Terrorism Squad (UP ATS) has arrested three people from Nagpur regarding UP's Anti-Conversion Act in Lucknow. The trio was arrested on Friday night from the Ganeshpeth area of Nagpur. The accused have been identified as Prasad Rameshwar Kawale (from Nagpur), Kausar Alam Shaukat Ali Khan (from Jharkhand), and Bhupriya Bando Devidas Mankar (from Gadchiroli), as indicated by a Nagpur police official. The UP ATS made several arrests last month and claimed to have busted a nationwide racket of conversions. An FIR was lodged in Lucknow under the state's anti-conversion law. The UP Prohibition of Unlawful Conversions of Religions Ordinance, 2020, introduced in November last year, prohibits illegal religious conversions and annuls marriages if they are performed only for religious conversion.
