Priest, nun get bail after arrest for killing crane chicks
Since the two had acted on a good intention, the lower court should have resolved the matter without bringing it up to the High Court, the judge said while granting bail to Fr. Simon D’Cunha and Sr. Deena.
Police arrested them on August 8 for killing more than 250 crane chicks while trimming a tree in a school compound.
Fr Pius D’Souza, diocesan chancellor who was present in the court for the bail hearing, said the diocese expected the two to be released from the jail today.
