In an apparently pre-planned attack, priests and nuns of a Jesuit Mission were beaten up by angry villagers two weeks after a student died of cardiac arrest in Jharkhand. The attackers further demanded 10 lakh rupees (1 million) as compensation for the death of the child. A priest sustained a head injury and was hospitalized.
