9 members of a Mission Board of a Christian Fellowship located in Delhi who went to visit their mission field this morning in Churu district, Rajasthan were apprehended by a mob, beaten up and taken to a police station. The mob did not even spare the two women members who accompanied them.

Thanks to the intervention of police, they were rescued from hindutva activists, 400-500 of them, who physically attacked them continuously for over two hours without sparing the ladies. They were falsely accused of promising large amounts of money to a family as an allurement. The Christians chose not to lodge a formal complaint against these goondas despite sustaining physical injuries.
