Kochi: A local court trying the Sister
Abhaya case today criticised the accused for attempting to
delay proceedings by seeking copies of certain documents.
Sister Abhaya was found dead in the well of the St Pius
Convent in Kottayam in 1992.
The Ernakulam Chief Judicial Magistrate K A Baby, orally
made the observation while dismissing a petition filed by the
accused-- Father Thomas Kottoor, Father Jose Puthrikayil and
Sister Sephy, seeking copies of certain documents, including
those of case diary filed by the police and crime branch,
which first investigated the case.
The court held that the documents sought by the accused
were not of any importance.
The case has been posted to October 5.
