Holy relics theft: suspect's photo released

Special Correspondent

THRISSUR: The police on Thursday released a photograph of a person allegedly involved in a case related to the missing of holy relics from the Holy Cross Shrine Church at Mapranam on November 30.

As part of the investigation, the police are looking for Shakti alias Karthikeyan of Kondiyara, an accused in several cases in the past

three decades.

Three relics were kept at the Holy Cross Church, founded in AD 928 — the relic of the Holy Cross, and remnants of the Holy Cloth used by Veronica to wipe the face of Jesus Christ and the Holy Blood of Jesus Christ. They were believed to have been brought to the Church in the 18th century from the Vatican.

Some parts of the three monstrances or ‘Arulikkas' (vessels containing relics), a metal cross and some cotton were found on the

premises of the Church cemetery in a search conducted by parishioners on December 3.
