Story By: Business Standard/Matters India

Thiruvananthapuram : Two days after a CSI church here at Poudikkonam (Puthukunnu) was attacked by a group of people, Kerala Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala today vowed to take action against the perpetrators.

The incident took place on the night of December 31 following a wordy quarrel between some people of the area and persons in charge of illumination arrangements made at the church, police said.

A group of 30 persons under the influence of alcohol pelted stones at the church, police said, adding there was no damage caused to the place of worship.

As the church authorities planned for an agitation over the attack, Chennithala visited the church and assured them that all steps would be taken to nab the perpetrators, Business Standard reported.

Accepting the assurance, the church authorities informed the Minister that the proposed direct agitation was being stopped, a government release said.
