However, he admitted to the police that he has beaten Tara many times but not for religious conversion but over other household issues. Ranjit said he started practising Islam recently after coming in touch with religious people.
Police said they have not found any proof of Ranjit's conversion to Islam so far. Tara has alleged in the FIR that she came to know about Ranjit's conversion to Islam only after marriage. Ranjit assaulted her when she refused to convert, she alleged.
Kohli and his mother were arrested on Wednesday. According to police, Ranjit Kohli's mother Kaushlaya was a Muslim (Kauser) at the time of her marriage. She converted to Hinduism later. However, when her father passed away, she re-converted herself to Islam.
