ICC note: Innocent boy was brutally murdered. An event all to common in India. Pray for his family.
7/11/07 Kerala, India (SVM News)– The dead body of a 14 year old Christian boy was found on the railway track today near All Saints College, Thiruvanandapuram, the capital city of Kerala. He was a tenth standard student of St Josephs Higher Secondary School.
It has been alleged that two persons, who abducted him yesterday night might have murdered him.
The boy identified as Nithin, was the only son of Napolean and Nirmala, residing behind G V Raja School. It was the local people who found the body today morning. His purse was found lying fifty meters away from the body.
“It was found from the body that the backside of the skull was broken. Also noticed the cause of the death is not by an accident of a train,” police officials told to Rev. Paul Ciniraj, the national president of the Christian Ministers of the Churches of India (CMCI) and the Director of the Salem Voice Ministries. “It might be a beaten to death,” they said.
His relatives alleged that two persons, who came in a car, took him saying that his father was not well. His father and their neighbour received calls from the boy saying that he has been kidnapped.
Immediately Napolean contacted Rev. Louis, the parish priest of Kannanthura St. Peter’s Church and they have given complaint at Valiathura Police Station. The police have started investigation in the case.
The calls were made from a public booth near Karikakkam.
“Nithin was a cool person and also a cadet of National Cadet Corps (NCC). There is nothing for him to commit suicide, but it must be a well planned murder; probably a persecution,” Nithin’s father Napolean said.
Napolean is an employee of Canara Bank at Chirayinkil. Nithin’s mother is Nirmala. His only sister Nimmi is a nursing student in Bangalore.
Napolean and family is a prayer fellowship member of the Salem Voice Ministries in Thiruvanandapuram. Paul Ciniraj visited them with deep mourning and said in the condolence message that Nithin was a beautiful flourishing flower in our Lord’s garden and he was plucked by the Gardener Jesus Himself to decorate His table. No doubt he is with our Lord Jesus and we shall meet him face to face on that beautiful shore in our Lord’s great and wonderful Day.
