Kottayam, Jul 6 (UNI) Police burst tear-gas shells to disperse a violent mob of SNDP Yogam activists today when they allegedly attacked and pelted stones at the Heavenly Feast worship centre (a Christian Worship Centre) here.
Police said few persons sustained injuries in stone pelting. SNDP Yogam activists staged a protest meeting before the town 'B' branch of the Yogam against the alleged conversion at the Heavenly Feast, which is near the SNDP Yogam branch office.
Few SNDP Yogam activists entered the Heavenly Feast worship centre and destroyed furniture in the morning. Police removed them.
Later the SNDP Yogam activists pelted stones at the worship centre.
They also threatened the believers who came for worship at the Heavenly Feast. Police had to burst tear gas shells to disperse the violent mob.
Meanwhile, the heavenly fest authorities had cancelled today's worship at the centre to avoid untoward incidents because of the protest meeting by the SNDP Yogam. Heavenly Fest authorities described today's incident as unfortunate.
