CHRISTIAN BREAKING NEWS: Who is Sister Mercy? Carmel School In Ambikapur, Chhattisgarh, India | CARMELITE NUN ARRESTED FOLLOWING SUICIDE BY A SIXTH-GRADE GIRL STUDENT OF A CATHOLIC SCHOOL

A Carmelite nun has been arrested in the country’s central Chhattisgarh state and charged with abetting the suicide of a sixth-grade girl at a school where she teaches, in what many Catholic leaders describe as the latest act of harassment and persecution directed at India’s Christian minority.

Sister Mercy, who only goes by one name, is from the southern state of Kerala and was arrested on Feb. 7 after the young girl’s body was discovered hanging from a ceiling fan in her home.

According to police sources, the girl left a note complaining that she had been “tortured” by the nun.

If convicted guilty of the crime, Sister Mercy may face up to 10 years in jail.

As reports spread on Feb. 5 following the discovery of the girl’s death, a crowd of Hindu nationalist activists allegedly gathered in front of the Catholic school that she attended, demanding the arrest of Sister Mercy and the school principal, who is also a Carmelite nun.

Following the arrests, authorities locked up the school and sent troops to watch it until the situation stabilized.

The local church’s spokespeople have refuted the claims against Sister Mercy.
