Thiruvananthapuram

Prayer group attacked

Eight persons sustained minor injuries after nearly 50 persons allegedly owing allegiance to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) attacked a prayer group at Attingal on Sunday.

The Attingal police said the incident occurred around 12.30 p.m. when the Reaching World with Love Ministry, a Pentecostal group, was holding a prayer meeting at the municipal library hall. The activists marched to the venue raising slogans and accused the group of organising a conversion drive and targeting those belonging to the Hindu faith. The police registered a case against 20 persons.
