Christian educator in India accused of human trafficking ( The Baptist Paper)

A Christian educator accompanying students to a Bible institute in India was arrested and charged with human trafficking and fraudulent conversion.

Liju Kuriakose was arrested in Manikpur in India’s Chhattisgarh state as he chaperoned eight Christian students traveling by bus to a Bible institute in Kerala state, reports Morning Star News.

Police have accused Kuriakose of human trafficking and of luring children to convert through the offer of money.

One student told Morning Star that police pressured them to say that they were being trafficked. “We all had vehemently refused and told the police that we have been Christians for a while and are not new converts. … When their attempts failed, police sent us to the Child Welfare Committee’s home.”
