On 28th December 2016, in Kathawand village, Kondagaon district, Bastar, Chattissgarh, Hindutva activists tried to prevent the burial of the mortal remains of a 22 year old girl in the village cemetery.

They were opposing the burial since she had embraced Christianity.

The police intervened and enabled the burial to happen. Further, they called the leaders on 1st January 2017 and warned them against creating such a ruckus in the future over Christian burials.
