An aggressive mob of about 70 Shiv Sena activists attacked a Church on July 6, 2014 in Jaunpur during their Sunday morning worship at 10:30 am, which was attended by 250 people, including women and children. Even when the Police arrived, the ruthless attack on the members of the Church did not stop until the senior police officials arrived and intervened with additional police personnel at the scene. 11 Christians were arrested the same day over allegations of conversion while 5 attackers from the mob were arrested on a non-bailable warrant the next day. The 11 Christians were bailed out on July 8, 2014.
