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.
