One arrested in church attack as Modi seeks reports/ Cardinal Cleemis rushes to meet violated nun;


PMO has asked for immediate report on facts and action taken regarding the incidents in Haryana & West Bengal.

New Delhi:As Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday sought reports, police arrested the first accused in the Haryana church attack but culprits in the Bengal nun gang-rape case remained at large.

Hisar Superintendent of Police Saurabh Singh said Anil Godara, the main accused in the church attack incident was arrested. He said that the accused will be produced before a court and police would seek his remand.

“Further investigations in the case are under progress and search is on for remaining accused,” he said.

A group of suspected Hindu fanatics vandalized an under-construction church in Kaimri village in Hisar and its cross was replaced with an idol of Hanuman, triggering tension.

Father Subhash Chand of Williwarsh church lodged a complaint against 14 people, following which a case was registered by police under several sections.

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed “deep concern” over the gang-rape of a 71-year-old nun in West Bengal’s Nadia district and the vandalisation of a church in Haryana.

He also sought reports on both of the incidents that kicked up uproar across the country with the opposition taking up the issue to assail the government in Parliament.

“PM is deeply concerned about the incidents in Hisar, Haryana and Nadia, West Bengal,” the Prime Minister’s Office tweeted.

“PMO has asked for immediate report on facts and action taken regarding the incidents in Haryana & West Bengal,” the tweet said.?

In West Bengal, shops and schools were closed at Ranaghat in Nadia district on Tuesday in protest against “police inaction” on the attack on the convent and the gang rape of the 71-year-old nun.

They also robbed Rs. 12 lakh and valuables before escaping.

    Cardinal Baselios Cleemis, if you are so very concerned about the 71 year old nun who was raped, then why have YOU not taken action against the seminarian Br. Pradeep Ekka John who secretly video-graphed a nun Sr. Anupama Joseph SRA from a bath-room ventilator when she was taking a bath in a Ranchi, Bihar convent. Instead of the Cardinal dismissing him for good and sending down a stern message on the integrity and discipline within the Catholic Church, he has sent him to Rome for further studies in theology. This is totally unacceptable and condemnable by the laity on your clergy !!!

    What is your explanation on the above matter ? Please clarify by a reply.
