In a gruesome incident a tribal Hindu youth was killed and hanged in Assam’s Lakhimpur district allegedly for loving and trying to marry a Christian girl without converting to Christianity.
The incident took place in Koilamri Balijan area of Assam. According reports from the locals and the police, Biki Bishal was dragged out of his house allegedly by cadre drawn from four Christian churches in the area and lynched to death.
Reports said that Biki Bishal and the Christian girl in question were in love and wanted to marry. The girl also moved in with Biki in his house.
Later, a large mob drawn from local churches gathered outside Biki’s house and threatened him with grave consequences. While the mob took the girl with them, Biki was given the option to convert to Christianity or break things off with the girl.
When Biki rejected the offer to convert to Christianity, the mob allegedly vandalised his house and then killed him. Later, his body was found hanging from a tree.
