The group, based in Nepal, were accused of trying to ‘lure conversions’ and were detained overnight. Meanwhile, a box of Bibles, a laptop, a USB stick, cash, a nebu-liser machine, and a vehicle were reportedly taken from the group at a hotel in Dang district in midwestern Nepal. The American woman is reportedly being held under house arrest and may soon be deported. Meanwhile their driver has since been released, but remains under investigation.
