On April 3, 2023, the Hindi portal Samachar Today reported
that the two young Christian missionaries were trying to convert illiterate people to Christianity by enticement. Some local villagers called the police and informed them about their religious activities. The villagers alleged that the missionaries have converted some poor people under the pretext of free medical treatment, financial help and superstition.
