On 22nd January 2018, Christians were beaten up by the hindutva extremists in Gaura Viilage, Kullu, Himachal Pradesh.

An evangelist has been conducting Christian prayers in a rented premise at Dura village of Kullu since 2010.
On 16 Jan 2018, he and another Christian evangelist, were heading to the nearby bus stop after concluding a prayer meeting there at 1:30 pm when they were stopped by the hindutva extremist residents of Gaura village, questioned them about their religious activities in that area.The trouble maker then started to speak very aggressively and began to falsely accuse them of carrying out religious conversion work by force and fraud.

When the Christians refuted their charges, they were beaten up by their accusers and also warned that they would be burnt alive if they ever dared to visit the area again. An FIR was filed on 18 Jan 2017 against the aggressors at the Nirmand Police Station under sections 341, 323, 506 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code.
