At least three Swedish nationals were taken into custody in Assam on Wednesday after meeting in the Dibrugarh area in violation of their visa provisions.
According to a senior police officer, they were charged by the police for attending a conference in Ghinai while travelling under tourist visas.
The three tourists were brought before a court, where they were declared guilty under the Foreigners Act and given the order for their deportation by the Deputy Commissioner and the district police.
Notably, between October 25 and October 27, United Churches Fellowship and Bless Assam Mission Network held the “Peace and Healing Prayer Festival” to draw people to the area.
According to police sources, the aim of these preachers was to convert the locals over to Christianity.
