On 29 December in Narketpally, Nalgonda, a pastor and his wife were brutally attacked at their home, landing them in a hospital with severe injuries.

At about 11:30 p.m, the wife of the Pastor opened the door when somebody knocked ‘asking for shelter at the church as they missed their bus.’

However, the miscreants began to beat the pastor’s wife with an iron rod as soon as she opened the door. She fell unconscious on the floor after she was beaten two times on her head with an iron rod.

Thereafter, the miscreants started stabbing the Pastor with a knife as soon as he appeared. The pastor sustained a stab wound on his stomach and was stabbed nine times on his back.

Seven people from the Hindu Vahini were arrested in connection to the incident.
