[Note: It has been more than three months since the heinous crime of kidnap, dacoity and attempt to murder was perpetrated on Bishop Gallela Prasad of Kadapa on April 25. Yet there is no official word from Cardinal Cleemis, as President of CBCI, on the Action Taken on the masterminds of the crime viz. Fr. Nalladimmu Raja Reddy, 48, Parish Priest of Palur in Peddamudiyam mandal of Kadapa and the main accused, Fr. Lingala Vijaya Mohan Reddy, 45, the parish priest in Vallur and accused No. 13 and Fr. Sanivarapu Marreddy, 39, parish priest at Renigunta in Chittoor district accused No. 14. The Laity wants to know from the Cardinal whether the three culprit priests have been DEFROCKED or they have been granted amnesty (read licence to kill) in view of the Jubilee Year of Mercy to do more untold damage to the Indian Church in the guise of wolves in sheep's clothing. CCV's Isaac Gomes is of the opinion that the Cardinal instead of taking up Mounabrata like NAMO, owes an explanation to the Laity].
As per the report captioned "Attack on Bishop, 14 arrested including 3 Priests" Published on: 9:45 pm, May 4, 2016 Story By: Matters India reporter, Kadapa Superintendent of Police (SP), Dr. P Navin Gulati said Resentment over transfers provoked them (the three parish priests) to kidnap and manhandle the prelate.
“Bishop Gallela Prasad was kidnapped at Chillikanuma near Nagasanipalle in Khajipet mandal on April 25 by a group of persons who showered blows on him, blindfolded and tied him up, kidnapped, and took him to an undisclosed place and demanded a ransom of Rs. 50 lakhs (USD 75,000) by threatening to kill him,” told Superintendent of Police to the media persons in Kadapa. “It was a case of kidnapping for ransom, dacoity, attempt to murder, causing hurt and mischief, and criminal conspiracy,” he added.
The accused left the Bishop and his driver on the highway, 90 KMs away from Tadipatri at about 2 a.m. on April 26 after the Bishop agreed to pay Rs. 20 lakhs (USD 30,000), though the assailants had asked for Rs. 50 lakh.
