According to details, eleven of the injured are still undergoing treatment at a hospital in Jagdalpur, where they were brought in a truck. While the police on the other hand recorded their statement, senior civil and police officials are reluctant to reveal more details about the incident at the moment.

Chhattisgarh Christian Forum (CCF) president Arun Pannalal told Times of India that the manner in which the attack was orchestrated raises suspicion that local officials were hand in glove with attackers.
