The youth's conversion came to light when he started keeping Ramazan fasting and started conducting five times namaz. The incident was spread among the community. Lekha Singh filed the complaint, which claimed that Maulavi Gulvez and Nadim instigated son Gulab Singh for conversion to Islam by enticement.
 
After investigation, both the accused Nadeem and Maulvi Gulvez were taken into custody, and both of them were interrogated, and then the truth of the incident came to light. After presenting them in court, both were sent to jail. The case is under further investigation.
