  Intimidation, Threats and Harassment, Physical assault


On 10th May, 2020, a group of people summoned a Christian family to attend a Village meeting to discuss some points regarding constructing a church in Chaibasa, West Singhbhum in Jharkhand. They kept waiting for people to come for the meeting, but no one turned up even after three hours of waiting, therefore they went back home.

Later, in the evening some miscreants went to the church construction site and damaged the building. They also assaulted some Christians and tore clothes off some women who were at the church premises.

The next day, even though the victims complained at the local police station, no action was taken. After a while, the miscreants threatened the Christians and told them that the police wouldn’t take action on any of their complaints.
