A Christian family leads a church attended by 20-30 members, situated at Balarampuram in Srikakulam District in Andhra Pradesh. Since the population of Christians in the village is very insignificant, the villagers often harass them. The Christian family had organised a gospel retreat for all the Christians in the village. After the programme, when they were returning back to their respective homes, a mob o of villagers came and snatched their belongings and beat them up using sticks and stones. Although the Christians filed a complaint against the mob, no action was taken by the local police.
