Archbishop Moves Supreme Court Seeking Probe

Archbishop Raphael Cheenath of Cuttack-Bhubaneshwar Moves Supreme Court Seeking Probe

ICNS reports:
Archbishop Raphael Cheenath of Cuttack-Bhubaneswar on Tuesday moved Supreme Court seeking high level probe into the violence against Christians in Orissa.

The archbishop in his petition also said riot police are deployed only in the cities. More forces are needed in the interior villages, where violence continues

The archbishop wanted the court direct the state for an investigation into the circumstances and reasons of the violence by Central Bureau of Investigations.

The central agency cannot investigate a case under a state government unless invited by that particular state. The police have not established the reasons for the violence but radical groups blame Christians.
