At about 10 AM a mob of 30 hindutva activists forcibly stormed into the house of a Christian, at Aaragaon, Balrampur district, Chhattisgarh. Eleven Christians had gathered there to study the Holy Bible and to pray to Jesus Christ.

As soon as the mob entered the house, they started falsely accusing the Christians of hurting religious sentiments and of carrying out religious conversion work. They also kept on shouting that they wouldn’t allow any Christian prayers to be offered in that village.

The trouble makers beat up three of them. The violent mob then took them, including two women, to the local police station – Bariyan Chowki were an FIR was lodged against the Pastor under IPC Sections 502, 505 and Section 4 of Chhattisgarh Freedom of Religion Act. He was later released on bail.
