'Hurt sentiments led to attack on church'

'Hurt sentiments led to attack on church'


Janakriram, a coffee grower, said that the hillock known as Rashi Gudda had a cave with a small opening.
Hindus used to visit the spot, drop stones into the cave and listen the echoing sound.
Later, Christian coffee growers bought the entire hillock and helped a church come up right at the place.
The opening to the cave was closed and the hillock rechristened as ‘Shilibe Gudda, which hurt Hindu sentiments. This resentment led to attack on a church at Maagud near Aldoor, Janakiram told the Commission.
The Commission also accepted the statement of N Shetroji Rao, a retired government employee.
