District administration has enforced Section 144 in Geltua, three persons are allowed to gather in the vicinity of the Church," said Manoj Patra, Sub Collector of Bhadrak

Phulamani Munda, who belongs to the Tribal community said, "We just came here to pray yesterday. We were not using loudspeakers here or never hurt anybody's sentiments. Peacefully, we prayed here in this Church. We believed in Jesus and follow the path of Jesus. We don't know, why people here are harassing us?" (ANI)
