SCPCR seeks probe into alleged forced conversion of children
The chairperson of State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (SCPCR) Usha Negi recently received a complaint letter from a man complaining about the allegedly forced religious conversion of his children at the home of his in-laws. As mentioned in the letter, the wife of the Dehradun resident complainant Amit Kumar is living at her parent’s home with their two children since January 2019 and in spite of his many attempts, she did not return to his home. The complainant said that he recently came to know that his mother in-law has converted her religion to Christianity and now she and his wife’s uncle are forcing his kids, who are only four and five years old, to convert their religion. The complainant also accused his wife’s uncle of beating and molesting his children. He said that his kids are being tortured in that house and his mother in-law and uncle told him that they are being offered Rs one lakh for the conversion of the religion and if he wants his kids back, he should bring the said amount.
In the response to this complaint letter, Negi has instructed Dehradun Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) to investigate the matter and asked him to submit the investigation report in the commission within 15 days.
