When local Christians protested, the attackers beat them. Local Christians reported the killing to the authorities, but there has been no police response to date. Sukhdev Negi’s brother, Sahdev, was abducted by Naxalites in 2013. When he was released, the Naxalites warned him never to return to his home village or to speak about his Christian faith, according to the Evangelical Fellowship of India.
