The alleged accused of a controversial case of religious conversion, Jose Matthews, secretary, Christian Council, Ratlam, was arrested by police on Monday evening, SP Ratlam, Dr Ashish said.

A case against Matthews was registered on December 12 on the complaints of Hindu organisations, which alleged that he was conducting a function at Lions Hall, Ratlam to convert tribals to Christianity. Police also reached the place and received complaints of pressure being built on some persons to convert to Christianity.

Earlier on Monday, police raided the residence of Matthews and some of his relatives but without any success. Matthews was later released on bail.
