B Sreejan

It may be a strange coincidence. At a time when the sleuths from the
Central Bureau of Investigation are interrogating the Knanaya Catholic
bishops in the state regarding the Sr Abhaya murder case, two senior
Syro-Malabar bishops left for Delhi with a mission to meet UPA
chairperson Sonia Gandhi.

Sources close to the Church told to
this website’s newspaper that Kanjirappally Bishop Mathew Arackal and
Idukki Bishop Mathew Anikuzhikattil have landed in New Delhi.
They have sought an appointment with Sonia also. But, it was not clear whether they could meet her.An
MP from Central Kerala, who is close to the Catholic Church, took the
initiative for arranging the meeting between Sonia and bishops.

It is
learnt that the Syro-Malabar Church has decided to take up the cause of
the arrested priests and nun in the Abhaya case and ensure that they
get justice during trial.The bishops are expected to convey their anxieties to Sonia Gandhi and demand that a fair trial should be ensured in the case.
