In Sitapur District, Uttar Pradesh, on 18.9.2016, a pastor was forced to abruptly cease conducting a prayer meeting. The gathering of around 1000 people was forced to stop worship by 12 religious fanatics who came along with the local police from the Reusha station.
As soon as the miscreants reached the spot, they manhandled some of the attendees and chased them away. They caught hold of the pastor, tied him to a tree, stripped him naked and beat him up brutally.
Later he was brought to the Reusha police station where it was alleged that he is carrying out forceful religious conversions.
