Jalandhar, April 13

A Mumbai-based family has reportedly fallen prey to superstitious beliefs. In order to get a better treatment for his sister (a cancer patient), Shubham Pandit came to Jalandhar with his mother to meet pastor Balwinder Singh. He allegedly not only converted their religion, but also duped them of Rs 80,000. The matter came to the fore after the victim approached the SSP office.

After being approached by a disciple of Balwinder Singh in Mumbai, the victim was told that the pastor has power to cure any disease.Pandit agreed to meet the pastor at a church in Tajpur village.

Balwinder asked Pandit to pay Rs 1 lakh for the treatment, which he could not afford, and the deal was fixed at Rs 80,000. “After making us stay here for 12 days, the pastor gave us oil and water. He termed it as a holy water. He forcefully converted our religion as well. Neither my sister could be saved nor our money was given back,” said Pandit.

The SHO, Lambra police station, said they had received the complaint and were investigating the matter. — TNS
