An FIR has been lodged against three people including a female doctor for allegedly trying to forcibly convert a girl to Islam in Karnataka's Mangaluru.


Based on a complaint by the mother of the victim Shivani, the police have filed an FIR against Khaleel, Dr Jameela and Aiman under the Karnataka Protection of Right to Freedom of Religion Bill, 2022.



As per the complaint filed by the victim's mother, Shivani used to recharge her mobile phone at a shop belonging to one Khaleel. Khaleel befriended her and promised her that she would get a good job and money in 2021.


"He took her to his relative's house, where she was then allegedly forced to offer namaz and recite the Quran. Also, he has changed her name to Ayisha. Khalib had also allegedly sexually molested her," the complainant said in a letter.
