South Indian Christian Leader urges withdrawal of cases
The Kanyakumari District Administration should withdraw cases foisted on members of the United Christian Council (UCC) for taking out a peace rally, urged Most Rev.G Devakadasham, Moderator of Church of South India (CSI) and Bishop of Kanyakumari Diocese at Nagercoil on Tuesday. Mourning the death of J. Edwin Raj in a communal clash at Nadaikavu near Kaliyakkavilai (Nithravilai) on August 26, UCC members had taken out a peace rally in eight places in the district on September 09 defying the prohibitory order of the police. Therefore, the police had booked UCC members, along with member of Lok Sabha, J. Helen Davidson and the MLAs who had participated in the rally.
In this backdrop, the Bishop during a press meet in Nagercoil urged the district administration to withdraw the cases. He also expressed his disappointment over the arrest of the district president of BJP, C. Dharmaraj, who has been named as the main accused in the Edwin Raj murder case. He also urged the administration to take steps to get compensation for Edwin Raj's family and condemned the speech made by Hindu Munnani leader Rama Gopalan during a protest held in front of the collectorate on Monday.
