Christian evangelist murdered in Nepal

Catholic World News - November 05, 2013

A Christian who worked as an evangelist has been murdered in the largely Hindu nation of Nepal, according to multiple reports.

The evangelist, identified as Debalal, rose in the middle of the night after he was summoned to pray for a sick man in Fattepur, a village of 9,000 in the southeastern portion of the nation. When he arrived, the sick man “beat the evangelist with an iron rod and slit Debalal’s throat with a khukuri (a popular Nepali knife with a curved blade),” according to the Indian Christian Activist Network.

The evangelist had previously been told by Fattepur residents that he should stay away from the village, as they did not wish to hear his message.
