In the latest development in controversy-ridden Bangalore Archdiocese, the Karnataka High Court has asked the archbishop and a group of parishioners to take a "conciliatory" approach to re-open a closed parish church.
Archbishop Bernard Moras of Bangalore closed down St. Paul the Hermit Church after parishioners installed the bust of a dead priest who was accused of killing another priest three years ago.
The bust was of the late Father Chowrappa Selvaraj, one of six priests police accused of murdering seminary rector Father K.J. Thomas.
