According to the authorities, a man accused of running a religious conversion ring was discovered to have 30 Pakistani contacts saved in his phones. This information was made public on Wednesday. The suspect, known as Shahnawaz Khan, also had six email addresses, one of which had emails from Pakistan in its inbox. Khan’s two cellphones and CPU have been seized by authorities for further examination.

DCP city Nipun Agarwal revealed that Khan had been using six email addresses, two of which were obtained for the purpose of online gaming. Khan appeared in Ghaziabad court on Tuesday after being transported from Thane, Maharashtra, on a transit remand. He was then placed in judicial custody for 14 days. The DCP further stated that the police cybercrime unit is currently investigating the 30 phone numbers related with Khan to gather more information about them. The police intend to use the National Security Act against Khan if any substantial evidence is discovered. Khan is currently being held in the district jail, and police want to seek his remand from the district court for further questioning.

On 30 May, a resident of the Kavi Nagar area submitted a police complaint stating that his kid had been lured to convert to Islam using an online gaming software. On Sunday, Khan was detained by police at a relative’s home in Alibagh, Maharashtra, which is part of the Raigad district. Khan is originally from Thane’s Mumbra Township. On Monday, a Thane court granted the Uttar Pradesh Police transit remand for Khan.
