Pastor Arrested and Beaten up by Police in UP

Om Prakash Pandey a lay pastor was arrested by the local police in Sultanpur district of Uttar Pradesh on the 16th July 2006, while he was conducting Sunday worship. According to sources this was at the behest of the local VHP coordinator Amarjeet.

Om Prakash was taken to the Kurebhar Police Station where the Police Inspector Saroj and others allegedly beat him up mercilessly. They were cautious so that all the wounds that they inflicted on Om Prakash were not of a visible nature. Om Prakash was let off on the 17th July 2006 and no charges were framed on him. This solely demonstrates the utter disregard of the law by the police.
