A group of believers met for a service of thanksgiving after a significant healing, some of them traveling more than 200 kilometers [124 miles] to attend the service in Madhya Pradesh.
Local members of a Hindu radical group noticed the assembly. They broke in to videotape it and called police to break it up. Seven pastors and two laymen from three states were taken to the police station and jailed. They were held for four days before being fined 10,000 rupees each and then released. Now they must travel back and forth from their distant homes for court appearances and other legal matters. They have incurred significant legal fees and expenses from this harassment by Hindus who are empowered by anti-conversion laws in the area. These expenses are expected to continue for many months.
