The village head Rohidas Katore intervened the told the missionaries that the family belonged to the Hindu faith and their ancestors were Hindu.
While speaking with the Sakal, the village head said that we should prevent the first step of conversion by enticement, superstition etc., in tribal illiterate families. We will not tolerate it if someone attempts to convert villagers, he said.
