India sectarian attack victim awaits justice

Almost a year after attacking a teacher in Kerala, 27 men are yet to be charged.

    Almost a year after one of the worst sectarian attacks in southern India, TJ Joseph, a teacher, is still waiting for his attackers to be charged.

    Joseph was dragged out of his car and had his hands cut off by a group of young men who accused him of blasphemy.

    The incident that sparked the attack was a grammar test Joseph set in class.

    Twenty-seven men were arrested for the attack, many of them accused of having links to the controversial Islamic group, the Popular Front of India.

    Al Jazeera's Tarek Bazley reports from Kerala, India.
