Pastor Hemachandra Hebal, age 39, is in charge of a Gypsy Church at Thudipet A.K.Colony at Tarikere in Chikmagalur Distrrict of Karnatraka.

According to Persecution.in, pastor Hebal was conducting his Sunday Worship Service when the radical group came and stopped the prayer service, and started beating both him and his wife Elizabeth.

After the police came to the church, they took the pastor and his wife to the police station. There they were made to agree in writing that they would not continue converting people to Christianity and preaching the Gospel.

They were also told to vacate the place within 24 hours.

The Hebals were then reportedly taken to Tarikere Government Hospital to get treated for the injuries from the attack. It is not clear about the conditions of the pastor and his wife.

This is not the first time that attacks against the pastor and his church takes place.

Hebal lives with his wife Elizabeth, 35, and three young children, in a rented building which he also uses as his house church, during the last 5 months. He caters to the spiritual needs of his small congregation of 15 believers.
