New Delhi: Police on Sunday claimed to have arrested two men for allegedly abducting and trying to convert a 21-year-old woman here.

Mohsin and Sadiq, who were arrested under the new anti-conversion law, had also made arrangements for her ‘nikah’ (marriage), they said.

The woman has been found and the two men have been sent to jail, Superintendent of Police (SP) S Anand said.

”The woman’s family members had lodged a complaint on Saturday. Two of the three accused persons – Mohsin and Sadiq – were arrested, and the woman was found. Both have been sent to jail,” the officer said.
