The chief said authorities nabbed the two because they had illegally exhumed body of deceased without obtaining court orders.
"We don't have a problem with the faith of those involved but they needed to obtain court order if they believed they had capacity to pray and resurrect the dead," he said.
Police officers arrested the two and carted away with the body of the deceased.
