Key witness against Hindu radical is murdered

Catholic World News - July 29, 2011

A Hindu radical who was prosecuted for his role in the anti-Christian violence in Kandhamal in 2008 has murdered a key witness in the case against him, Christians in India charge.

Michael Digal was found dead in Kandhamal last week. Police immediately ruled his death accidental, but an autopsy later indicated a stabbing.

    I am not at all surprised by the apparent police cover-up. They were complicit in the violence to begin with.
