HC stays Order directing CRPF to take over Church

Latest News

On Thursday, a division bench of the Kerala High Court stayed the execution of a single bench’s order directing the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) to take over the Kothamangalam Marthoma Church and its movables if the Court’s order wasn’t complied with by the Ernakulam district collector by Jan 8.

The division bench stayed this order on the appeal filed by the State Govt against this.

The Court said it would consider whether the single bench can issue other directions in the case & would reconsider the case on Jan 15.

Earlier, the single bench had issued the order on a Contempt of Court plea filed by the vicar of the Orthodox faction against the Ernakulam district collector for not complying with the court directives.
