The Kerala High Court has recently granted bail to the convicts Father Thomas Kottoor and Sister Sephy in Sister Abhaya murder case.

Jomon Puthenpurackal a human right activist who brought the case to the Court when police closed Sister Abhaya case considering it a suicide and fought for the Justice for Sister Abhaya.

 He said that CBI had helped them in getting bail and that is why no other person should be blamed for it.

The CBI Court had gave life imprisonment to the convicts but they filed an appeal in which their sentence is suspended by the High Court.

Jomon had said that CBI failed to file counter affidavit even when one and half year is passed when convicts had filed the appeal. CBI failed in explaining the facts to High Court.

Jomon determined that he will challenge the High Court order in the Supreme Court and will file complaint for the lapses made by the CBI to director of CBI and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Advocate who represented the CBI in the case is new and had no knowledge of the case and the old Public Prosecutor of the case didn’t help him in the case alleged by Jomon.

Jomon is the person who is leading this legal fight from very long. Recently he had published his autobiography which has a title ‘Dhaivathinte Swantham Vakkeel’ which means God’s own advocate in which he primarily discussed the Sister Abhaya murder case.
