  • An investigation into this death is by far the longest-running murder investigation in the State of Kerala. Last year, the trial court had rejected the discharge petitions filed by them.

The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed the discharge pleas of accused priest and nun in Sister Abhaya Murder Case. The bench comprising Justice Abdul Nazeer and Subhash Reddy rejected the Special Leave Petition (SLP) filed by the petitioners against the Judgment of the High Court of Kerala, which upheld the trial court's dismissal of the discharge pleas in the Sister Abhaya murder case. Sister Abhaya, a Catholic sister, was found dead in a water well in St. Pius X Convent in Kottayam on 27 March 1992. An investigation into this death is by far the longest-running murder investigation in the State of Kerala. Last year, the trial court had rejected the discharge petitions filed by them. The CBI court had observed that there was sufficient ground for presuming that the two had committed offences punishable under Section 302 and Section 34 under Indian Penal Code.
