On the night of 24th April 2008, thre was a knock on the door at 12:00 midnight and police took Vijay from his residence near Timber factory Bhonga Dwar Kajarwara Jabalpur to the police station accusing him of converting people.

He was let off at 1:00am and returned home.Again, on 25th April, the Police arrived at his home and and took Vijay to the Police station and laid charges on him under Section 3 (4)and 295. The former is for conversion and the latter 295 is that he "demoralise or criticize other god goddesses".

Vijay was taken from the Sadar Cant police station to the Civil Court were his bail plea was rejected. He was then lodged in Subhash Chandra Bose Jail. The pastor and believers and the GCIC representative Rajesh are all trying for his bail. Pray for his early release.
