Supreme Court judgement disappoints Cuttack archbishop

National,Religion, Wed, 22 Oct 2008 IANS

Bhubaneswar, Oct 22 (IANS) Raphael Cheenath, the Archbishop of Cuttack - Bhubaneswar Wednesday said he was disappointed with the judgement of the Supreme Court on the petition he filed seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the nun rape case.


'I am disappointed. I was expecting more from the Supreme Court,' Cheenath told media persons after hearing the news that the apex court has declined his plea.



Cheenath said he will go through the judgement and will discuss it with the people of his community before giving any further statement on the matter.



Kandhamal district has seen large-scale communal violence, mostly attacks on Christians and their places of worship, after the Aug 23 killing of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Swami Laxmanananda and four of his aides.



Though Maoist rebels have claimed responsibility for the killings, radical Hindu groups hold Christians responsible for the crime.



At least 36 people have died in the violence that has left more than 20,000 people homeless.



Cheenath had filed a petition in the apex court seeking compensation to rebuild the churches demolished in the sectarian violence and seeking a probe by CBI into the alleged rape of a nun in the district.
