On 6 March 2016, a Christian was beaten up by the village kotwal (village head) and Hidma.

Instigated by anti-Christian elements, the Kotwal attempted to forcefully convert two Christians. One of them managed to escape into the jungle whereas the other could not and was severely beaten. He was admitted to the hospital and a complaint was filed against the wrongdoers.

The Sarpanch and other religious fundamentalists are pressurizing the police to let off the attackers.
