A group of Hindutva extremists threatened a pastor and his wife for running a church in Riga village in Sitamarhi, Bihar. Subsequently, the assailants severely assaulted the pastor and threatened other believers in the village with similar consequences if they do not renounce their faith in Christ. When the pastor complained about the incident at the nearby police station, the local police warned him saying he couldn’t run a church in the village because he did not have permission to do so.
