The Global Council of Indian Christians appealed to the Chief Minister of the State of Orissa over Christians fears of an ongoing series of serial murders against Christians. The girl’s father name’s possible murderer, so far without success.

Mumbai (AsiaNews) – The Global Council of Indian Christians (GCIC) has appealed to the Chief Minister to take charge of the serious concerns of Christians, linked to the illegal situation in Kandhamal after the rape and murder of a Christian girl of 17 years Nirupama Pradhan.

Nirupama Pradhan, a student at a school in Phulbhani, was raped and murdered near G Udayagiri, Kandhamal district. The half-decomposed body of the girl who attended the final class of the Plus II institute of Kalinga Mahavidyala was found by police on May 12 at Dhangadarna Hill lake. She had disappeared from home in the village of Padikia R, near R Udayagiri four days earlier.

The girl’s father, Sitrian Pradhan, informed the Global Council of Indian Christians that he suspected his daughter had been killed by Hindu radicals after being raped, and named an alleged culprit. The inspector in charge at G Udayagiri police station would not release any statement. Sitrian Pradhan has filed a complaint with the police after some farmers found the body near the lake. The Global Council is concerned over ongoing serial killings of Christians in the area. Previously, another Christian, Saul Pradhan, was killed. And the police refused to hand over the post-mortem to the widow report.
