Pastor physically assaulted

August 07, 2019 

At approximately 09:30 a.m., while the pastor was conducting a prayer meeting, a group of around 10 individuals led by a Buddhist monk, forcibly entered the premises and began shouting in obscene language at those gathered. They demanded the pastor leave the village at once and threatened him with death if he tried to return. The Buddhist monk began to physically assault the pastor, hitting him in the face, head and chest. A police officer from the Galewela Police arrived at the premises and managed to rescue the pastor and told him to lodge a complaint at the police station.

The pastor arrived at the Galewela Police Station at around 10:30 a.m. and lodged a complaint, bearing number CIB 373/125. He then admitted himself to the Galewela Hospital for treatment.
