The incident took place when the Pastor requested the youth, who were playing loud music before the idol of Ganesh near the church, not to disturb the worship service. As the Pastor was speaking to the organisers, more youth joined. Some of them tried to manhandle him. They asked him to close down the church and leave the village.
On 13 September 2010 when Pastor Caleb was out on his ministry work, the same group of youth came and attacked the Pastor’s wife. They hit her on her head with a wooden stick causing injuries.
The Pastor went to the local police station and filed a complaint against the youth who had attacked. According to sources, the Pastor, who has already undergone three surgeries, is not able to handle the pressure from the extremists.
