On 23rd June 2017, Christians were beaten up on the false allegation of conversion at North Bastar Kanker, Chattisgarh.

At 7 pm, around 150 hindutva activists barged in to the Christian meeting and started to beaten up the Christians. Villagers accused Christians of carrying witchcraft and forceful conversion.

In the meeting, villagers passed an oral order saying that Christians have to leave the village or renounce their faith and if Christians did not comply then there would be dire consequences, villagers threatened.
