A 55-year-old nun was found dead inside a well in a convent in Kollam’s Pathanapuram. According to IE Malayalam, staff members of the convent found the nun’s body at around 9 am on Wednesday. The police were informed about the incident and are investigating the cause of the death. The nun has been teaching at the convent for the last 12 years.

The death is reminiscent of the Sister Abhaya case that rocked Kerala in 1992. Abhaya was found dead inside a well in St Pius X Convent in Kottayam. The case was handed over to the CBI after local police wrote it off as suicide. In 2009, two priests and a nun were charged with the murder of Abhaya and destruction of evidence. It is alleged that Abhaya was murdered after she learnt about the two priests having illicit relations with a sister of the convent. The trial proceedings are still pending before the CBI special court and all the accused are out on bail.

More details are awaited.
