The mob action on 14 June followed an announcement two days earlier by the heads of Mahuatoli village, Gumla District in Jharkhand state, that 12 Christian families would be banished if they did not return to the tribal Sarna religion. Also threatened with death, most of the Christian families have fled the village.
