Christian leaders in a northern Indian state have expressed serious concern after a series of detentions and arrests over alleged "conversion" activities by police during the past week.

"More than 25 Christians including pastors were detained or arrested in the past week," said Pastor Jitendra Singh, general secretary of the Pastors' Association of Uttar Pradesh.

Some 20 Christians were detained last Sunday (Sept. 10) and released the same day in Kanpur district. Three were arrested in Azamgarh district on Sept. 13, and two were arrested in Auraiya district on Sept. 14, Pastor Singh told UCA News on Sept. 15.
