Believers attacked in Udaipur, Rajasthan

A group of Hindu activists attacked a group of Christian families on Sunday in Kharbar District of Udaipur, Rajasthan, in India.

The incident took place at around 9.00pm local time during a prayer meeting which was being conducted at the house of a believer named Naru, reports the Evangelical Fellowship of India (EFI).

Around three Christian families had come to attend the meeting.

The attackers surrounded the house and then barged inside the room and started beating the families present.

Several people were injured severely in the incident, and Naru was tied down in a room by the activists.

The local Christians are trying to contact the Inspector General of that area and are also in the process of sending a report to the state minority commission.

The local police have refused to release any information regarding the incident.

The EFI's General Secretary, Rev Dr Richard Howell, "Pray for the injured believers and that the miscreants would be caught and be brought to justice."
