Kodagu: Police has booked two persons on charges of religious conversion of tribals. It is said that  Kuriachchan and Selviyamma, both natives of bordering Kerala were visiting tribal colonies in Kutta of Ponnampete Taluk  frequently for converting people into Christianity.

Few workers of the Hindu outfits caught the couple red-handed while luring tribals Pani Eravara Muthu at their house on the evening of Tuesday May 17. The couple were handed over to  Kutta police. The duo have been booked under section  IPC 295 A.

Kutta Police Sub Inspector K. Mahadeva said that as the new Anti-Conversion Law is yet to be published in State Gazette, we have now booked them under old sections. He said  while filing chargesheet they would make the amendments and would  book them under new Anti-Conversion Law.

Hindu outfits urged police to take stringent action against accused as they were converting the tribals by luring them. Police has also seized a diary from the couple in which they recorded names of converted  people. Police investigation is on.
