On 3 May, Pastor ‘Falgun’, his wife and his sister and brother-in-law were praying for a sick neighbour when about 10 members of a Hindu extremist group rushed into the home and attacked the pastor with sticks.
When the pastor’s sister-in-law intervened, one of the militants grabbed her by the hair and smashed her head into the wall. The woman’s husband tried to protect her, but they then beat him as well.
After the militants finally left, more than two hours later, all four of the Christians were admitted to the hospital. The hospital discharged them the next day under pressure from the extremists, but the pastor’s sister-in-law was later diagnosed with a blood clot in her head. The four were then taken to another hospital.
