Over 100 people of the Christian community blocked Jalandhar-Nakodar road on Tuesday to protest against the alleged attack on the followers of a local pastor on late Monday night.

The angry protesters, who were demanding immediate arrest of the accused, burnt tyres on the road and even pelted stones.

According to the protesters, around four to five men came in a car on late Monday night to attack the pastor. But as they did not find him, they attacked three of his followers instead, they said.
