(ANS) – Gospel for Asia (GFA) said late Friday, September, 10, that three of its native missionaries who were captured and threatened with death in India’s north-eastern state of Bihar have been released by anti-Christian militants “in a miraculous turn of events.” The Hostage takers had threatened to kill Pastor Manrathan, his wife and Bible woman Sarita within 48 hours for “desecrating a village with the Gospel” unless a ransom of 25,000 Indian rupees (roughly $550) dollars was paid, a huge amount in the impoverished region, GFA said earlier. They were “severely beaten and tied to a sacred tree by an anti-Christian group,” since Thursday, September 9, added GFA President K.P. Yohannan in a message to his organization’s supporters, which include many evangelical Christians.
