Tamil Nadu, April 13, 2012: Pastor Y S John belongs to the Indian Pentecostal Church at Dalmiya Puram. He has about 100 believers in his church. On 12th April, Ms. Juli Dhanpaul, a member of his church, invited the pastor for a prayer at her house located in Venkatachalapuram village in Trichy city. About 30 believers were present at the prayer meeting.

At about 7 o’clock in the evening, a local rowdy, came and disrupted the prayer meeting and asked them to stop their prayer meeting immediately. Pastor’s nephew, Mr. John Britto (38), came out and tried to pacify the intruder and requested him not to interrupt and disturb the meeting as it was a regular prayer meeting. Instead of heeding to his request, the enraged rowdy took out his sword and attacked Mr. John Britto and almost cut off his left hand.

On learning about the tragic incident, the GCIC’s Trichy co-ordinator, Pastor Dhanpaul Daniel, rushed to the spot and got in touch with the family and immediately sent for an ambulance and made necessary arrangements for the hospitalization of Mr. Britto. Mr. Britto is currently undergoing treatment in the Government Hospital at Trichy. A complaint about the tragic attack has been lodged at the Dalmiya Puram Police Station, and the investigations are on.
