The Bangalore police subjected two priests, who were present at the Vatican-linked seminary on the night of April 1 2013 when Fr K J Thomas — a 64-year-old priest — was killed there, to narcoanalysis (truth serum) tests at forensic facilities in Ahmedabad.
After subjecting Fr Patrick Xavier, head of St Peter’s Pontifical Seminary, a key suspect in the murder, to the narco test last August, police have conducted the same last week on Fr Sebastian Perianna and Fr Lourdes Prasad. Police said results are awaited. Sources said the courts did not grant permission for tests for two other priests due to their age.
Police said there were five priests in the seminary the night Fr Thomas was murdered, contrary to initial reports saying only Fr Patrick Xavier was present. They had last year subjected Fr Xavier and two cooks — Raja and Reddy — to the truth serum test without finding any leads.
