An ICC spokesperson told the ASSIST News Service, “After showing the film, Evangelist Ravi Murmu and members of his team started their journey home. During the journey, Ravi left the team to take a short-cut to his house. When he failed to reach home late that evening, a search ensued. The searchers found his dead body with his right hand cut off, and deep cut wounds on his neck and other parts of his body.”

LAXMANPUR, INDIA (ANS) — Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that on Sunday, May 2, 2010 an Indian evangelist was brutally murdered in Laxmanpur, India, after showing Daya Sagar, a film about the life of Jesus Christ.

 According to the report by the “Persecution Update India”, the attackers didn’t take any of his belongings, including motor bike, cell phone, watch and the Bible. Thus, the motive for the murder doesn’t appear to be robbery.

Shailendra Murmu, brother of Ravi, and an evangelist himself, said that his brother seems to have been murdered between 9:30 and 10:00 PM.

“The police took the badly beaten and lacerated body to a hospital. After the post mortem exam was completed, Ravi’s family was able to take his body and bury it. The police have assured the family that they will soon find out the perpetrators of the crime and bring them to justice,” said the ICC spokesperson.

Ravi is survived by his wife Rinku, his 8 year old daughter, Celesty, and widowed mother.

When Shailendra was asked how the family is doing after the death of his brother, he answered, “the peace of God still reigns in this house and in this family.”ICC’s Regional Manager for South Asia, Jonathan Racho, said, “We are deeply saddened to hear of the murder of Evangelist Ravi. We urge Indian police to thoroughly investigate the killing and bring the perpetrators to justice.”
