On 21 March, in Digboi, Tinsukia, hindutva extremists severely beat up a Pastor. The Pastor had been requested by a few people to pray for a girl who was unwell. However this was a trap and the very people who called him to pray for the girl, accused the Pastor of rape, soon after he went with them to pray. They stirred up a mob, which beat him up and injured him badly. He was admitted in Tinsukia Civil Hospital.
