On the morning of 14 October 2012 Pastor Lal Mani along with his family was getting ready for the Sunday worship when a group of 10 people came to his house and began to abuse him and his family. In the heat of the argument these anti-social element began to physical abuse pastor Lal mani and his family. Lal Mani sustained 18 stitches on his head and daughter, wife and son was beaten with lathis and rods.Pastor Lal Mani called a Police Control Room (PCR) which dispatched the nearby PCR Van who took him to the Balmiki hospital in Bawana. Pastor Lal Mani was later discharged after being administered the necessary medical aid. The Shahbad dairy police station, under whose jurisdiction the case falls, refused to registered FIR on the same day. After the intervention of Aaj Tak TV channel, Metro Vihar Police Chowki registered an FIR under the following sections of CRPC 332/341/34/506. After registering an FIR police refused to give the pastor a copy of the FIR. Again as Aaj Tak TV Channel focused on the apathy of the police that they gave a copy of the FIR to Pastor Lal”.
This is not the first of such incidents as these anti-social elements have harassed Pastor Lal Mani in the past as well.
