    Crime Branch to probe Catholic priest's death

    Bhubaneswar (PTI): Orissa government on Thursday decided to ask the police to probe the death of Catholic priest Bernard Digal, who was allegedly injured during communal violence in Kandhamal, at a Chennai hospital.

    "As the government wanted to clear doubts over the reason behind Father Digal's death, it decided to hand over the probe to the state's profesisonal investigative agency," a senior home department official said.

    The official clarified this was the only reason why the police took the body of Father Digal to Capital hospital for postmortem as soon as it arrived at the airport.

    While some Christian leaders on Wednesday claimed that Digal succumbed to injuries sustained during the communal violence on August 25, another report claimed that the priest died of dengue on the night of October 28.
