Chandigarh christians prayLudhina, December 11, 2014: Church of North India’s Chandigarh dioceses has complained of Shiv Sena workers attacking a security guard and forcibly entering the area near Kalvari church on Tuesday.

The security guard was seriously injured. The dispute is over three yards of land, which the RSS claim, belong to them, the Times of India reported.

At 3:30pm, Shiv Sena workers attacked with revolvers, swords, knives and wooden sticks. They also misbehaved with Father Darbara Singh.

Police officer Gurpreet Singh in the old city said an FIR has been filed against Shiv Sena members. “They came armed with weapons and threatened people. However, there was more of a verbal fight, weapons were not used,” he said.

According to Father Singh, at around 12 noon “they tried to enter the premises of the Diocese of Chandigarh forcefully.” When stopped, they injured the security guard, who is now hospitalized.

Arun Henry, a member of the church, said they came up with fake papers and claimed the land belongs to their friend Rajan T Singh.

Sources said the dispute over the three yards of land, presently with the Diocese, has been going on since 1998.

The two parties are Rajan T Singh and the united CNI. The land previously belonged to Afzal Chaudhary, who handed it over to the Diocese a long time ago. Ironically, Rajan belongs to the same community.
