Kottayam, Nov 19 (UNI) Activist Jomon Puthenpurackal, who was instrumental in keeping the Abhaya case investigation alive during the past 16 years, today said the CBI had regained its lost glory with the arrest of three people in the case.
The arrests of two Catholic priests and a nun by the CBI in connection with the alleged murder of Sister Abhaya had proved that God would not allow culprits, ''even persons close to Him,'' escape punishment.
The two priests, Fr Thomas Kottoor and Fr Jose Poothrikkayil were teachers of the BCM College and Sister Seffy a staff of the Church-run publication and inmate of the Pious Xth Convent.
The body of Sister Abhaya, a student of the college and inmate of the Convent, was found in the well of the Convent on March 27, 1992.
An action council headed by P C Cherian Madukkani and Jomon was formed on March 31, 1992. Later, when the action council became inactive, Jomon spearheaded the agitation single-handedly.
