On 2 January, in Korara, Hiran, Ludhiana, Christian students who were distributing Bible tracts were targeted and beaten up by hindutva fanatics. The aggressors even locked up one of the Christian students and beat him up. The rest of the students were beaten up as they tried to rescue their friend. All of them were then taken to the Jandiali police station where more than 50 religious fanatics surrounded the police station and pressured the police to register a case against the students. After a few community leaders intervened, the students were allowed to go after nearly six hours in the police station.
