  Intimidation, Threats and Harassment, Physical assault

A mob of over 150 Hindu fundamentalists attacked and beat up about 50 Christians at a prayer gathering on September 14, 2014 at Bindhani Village, Ranchi. They chased Shrimati Katrina Khujur who was living at the house where the prayer meeting was being held and beat her brutally. She had run into the nearby lake to escape from the mob, but the mob followed her into the lake and beat her. They took her identity cards and her only savings from her home. Her face was severely injured. Though she lodged a complaint with the police, she was pressurized by the villagers to take her complaint back and huge mobs protested arrests outside the local police station.
