On 28.8.2016 in Siddharth Nagar, Uttar Pradesh, a Christian missionary and two other Christian workers had conducted a Sunday worship service in Shyampur village. Sunday prayers have been conducted in that village for the last 23 years. Soon after completion of the service at 11:30 AM, a mob of 15-20 people belonging to a hindutva outfit arrived and hustled the Christian leaders while accusing them of converting people dishonestly.

They held on to the Christian leaders forcibly and called the Bhavani Police station. The police arrived at the spot in about 15-20 minutes and took three of the Christians ( including the owner of the house where the prayers had taken place) to the Police station and questioned them for close to 3 hours.

The Christians were allowed to go home without any FIR when all charges leveled against them where found to be baseless.
