Bishops Concerned Over Fate Of Kidnapped Father Tom Uzhunnalil In Yemen

By

The Kerala Catholic Bishops’ Council (KCBC) has expressed concern about the uncertainty over the release of Father Tom Uzhunnalil, the Salesian Father who was abducted by a terror group in Yemen.

KCBC urged both India’s Central and State governments to ensure safe release of the priest as early as possible.

“KCBC is very much concerned about prolonged uncertainty in the release of Father Tom Uzhunnalil. We request the Central and state governments to continue their sincere efforts to make possible his safe release from the captivity of militants in Yemen,” a press release said after a two-day meeting of the Catholic bishops in Kochi, Kerala.

India’s Minister of State for External Affairs, Gen V K Singh, said last month that there was no “adverse” report about the 57-year-old Salesian priest.
