Religious fanatics of Sinduria village, Dumka District, Jharkhand, rounded up Evangelist Surender Pradhan and Bro. Philemon and brutally beat them up with no provocation whatsoever.
Both Christians, affiliated with SEC of Youth Missionary Movement, were visiting an Office, to register a piece of land and to enquire about the procedures to construct a Church building. When local villagers & religious fanatics, found out the purpose of their visit, they surrounded and brutally beat them up, confiscating their mobile phones too. Later they were taken to Ramgarh Market Police station.
