Christian leaded found dead in Kandhamal....

Micael Digal disappeared a few days ago. His body was found last night near the village of Mdikia. Police closed the case, claiming his death was accidental. The president of the Global Council of Indian Christians slams police and the authorities for covering up crimes by Hindu radicals.

Bhubaneswar (AsiaNews) – The body of Micael Digal, a Christian activist and leader, was found last night near the village of Mdikia (Kandhamal) after days of search. Following the autopsy this morning, police ruled the death “accidental”. However, for Sajan George, president of the Global Council of Indian Christian (GCIC), he was ambushed and killed by Hindu extremists for his work on behalf of 2008 pogrom victims and Christian Dalits.

“Even if the police have closed the case, the GCIC will continue to put pressure until Micael and other Christians brutally killed by Hindu radicals get justice,” he said.
