Kochi, Oct 25 (IENews) Sister Anupama who was spearheading the fight for justice for the 44-year old nun who accused Bishop Franco Mulakkal of rape was heckled and asked to leave the funeral service that was held for Father Kuriakose Kuttuthara.
Fr Kuriakose Kattuthara who had testified against Mulakkal, had been found dead under mysterious circumstances in his room at St Paul’s convent in Dasuya, Punjab.
The post-mortem was held at Jalandhar and body brought to Kerala Wednesday.
At the funeral services held a few hours ago, a section of the Christians protested Anupama’s presence and asked her to leave the cemetery at St Mary’s church in Pallipuram near here
“I am from this place. I know Father Kattuthara for many years. He has seen me as his own daughter.. we have only stood for truth,” she said.
Father Kuriakose’s mysterious death comes days after Mulakkal, who was arrested and is presently out on bail, reached Jalandhar from Kerala.
In fact, Fr Kuriakose feared for his life and even told his family about the danger to his life because he spoke against Bishop Franco Mulakkal.
