A 14-year-old girl in central India’s Chhattisgarh state was found murdered, which her family and church leaders say were because of them refusing to abandon their Christian faith. Family members found the body of the girl in a forest near their Jattarbeda village in Kondagaon district on July 22 after she failed to return home from school. The family and church leaders say that there is clear indication of rape before murder. The family of the girl became Christians 18 years ago but were reportedly under pressure from local leaders to give up their faith.
