Best example of torture and harassment of students inside the white walls of Christian church has come out to picture. Two nuns (sisters) are arrested for torturing and keeping homosexual affairs with students at Baripada.


According to police records, two minor girls namely Anjana Behera of village Titia and Sarojini Murmu of village Nachhipur under Khunta police station took admission in the “Bijoy Sadan”, missionary chhatri nivas”, a school run by Christian missionaries. It functions in the premises of the local Baptist church at village Baghamara. After their admissions they were allegedly compelled to worship Jesus Christ and to chant Bible continuously from 5 AM to 11.30 AM. As they were failing to do this due to sickness, tortured a lot both physically and mentally. In order to save life, both of them flew from the school and these heinous acts of missionaries came to light. Protests made by the local Hindu social organisation to arrest the culprits.

The two victims in the local police station on July 27, 2007 lodged F.I.R. S.Saswati the in-charge district collector of Mayurbhanj visited the spot along with the investigating cops. On July 28, 2007, two nuns namely sister Marry (50) and sister Prema (60) were arrested and forwarded to the court of S.D.J.M, Baripada. Latter as the court rejected their bail applications, they are remanded to judicial custody.

Shri Ranjan Mishra, a local social activist told that, “Inside the church school, many heinous activities are going on. Students are forced to have sex with attendants and teachers. As most of the students belong from poor vanvasi community, their torture has no limit. We have informed the district administration about this, and if no actions taken, we will not sit silently,” he warned.

On the other-hand, the church authorities have denied to comment more on the issue, expect the word “Truth will prevail”.
