Independent Pentecostal Church pastor Jacob Varghese was arrested. The police found that the charitable trust was functioning without sufficient documents. Following this, the police arrested him.

Kozhikode railway police had earlier taken into custody five Rajasthan natives into custody for bringing children without adequate documents. The 12 girls who were with them were handed over to the Railway Police Child Welfare Committee.

The children were brought on the Okha Express from Baroda.

They gave a statement to the police that they were taking them to teach at Karunalaya in Aluva Pulluvahi. Three of the adults are their parents and the other two are their relatives, they told the police.

An investigation conducted by the RPF found that the license of the company mentioned by them had been canceled three years ago.

They also did not have the documents to be produced while taking children from one state to another state for education.
