Peculiar fetish behind nun murder says police

NewsGram Staff Writer

Kottayam:  A senior police official said on Sunday that Satish Babu, 38,  who was arrested earlier this week for allegedly murdering a 69-year-old nun at a convent in  Kottayam had a queer mania for attacking elderly nuns.

Mentioning that neither theft nor enmity was the motive behind attacking elderly nuns, Additional Director General of Police K Padmakumar told reporters, “it was some sort of sadistic pleasure that he got while attacking elderly nuns.”

Satish was nabbed in Haridwar, Uttarakhand on Thursday by the local police after the Kerala Police traced a phone call made by him to his brother in Kasargode town.

Padmakumar also remarked that detailed grilling of the accused revealed that he had carried out similar attacks on nuns in four convents on five earlier occasions.

Sister Amala was found lying in a pool of blood in her room at a convent in Pala on September 17. A wooden club, with which the suspect reportedly bludgeoned the nun at the back of her head, was later seized by the police.

A team of Kerala Police officials reached Haridwar on Saturday and took Satish into custody from the Haridwar police. He was flown to Kochi from Delhi on Sunday morning and after a preliminary medical examination he was brought to the district police headquarters in Kottayam.
