In the ever escalating number of incidents of mob violence, now members of a Christian family have alleged that they were “thrashed, abused and forced to leave a ‘Thakur’ dominated” locality in Lucknow. The incident has reportedly taken place at Nandi Vihar colony in the Chinat area of the state’s capital.

The aggrieved couple alleged that being the only family from a ‘minority’ community in the area, they were being harassed since a long time. However, on Monday, i.e. July 23 things came to a tipping point as the children of the Christian family and Thakur family reported clashed.

Matters didn’t end there and as per reports, the victim Pomila Paul alleged that they were being abused for many days for “being Christians” and her husband was even allegedly thrashed by the neighbours.

It was also reported that the neighbours abused the family for many hours and have been told that they won’t allow the family to stay in the locality which is dominated by Thakurs.

The victim said that she fears for her and her family’s life.

Pomila also reported regarding police inaction in the whole incident. The family complained repeatedly. Not merely this, she also said that “they were being pressured to opt for a compromise.” Apparently, the father of one of the accused persons is a sub-inspector (SI) in the Uttar Pradesh police. Moreover, there were allegations of physical violence committed on Pomila by the police officer’s son. The neighbour who tried to help the family was also beaten up.

Circle Officer of Gomti Nagar, Awnishwar Chandra Srivastava said that the police have filed cases from both sides and the prime accused Shubham has been arrested and case under Section 307 has been registered against him.
