The church of South India has suspended the Bishop in Thoothukudi-Nazareth Diocese for assaulting the church’s general secretary during a meeting of the Synod’s Executive Council in February.
On 3 April 2013 Sun TV reported that moderator of the CSI, the Bishop in Kanyakumari Diocese G. Devakadasham, had assumed temporary oversight of the diocese following the suspension of Bishop J.A.D. Jebachandran for assaulting General Secretary M.M. Philip.
Spokesmen for the bishop and the executive council did not respond to requests for clarification but the anti-corruption lay group Youth4CSI reports the spat between the bishop and the Synod’s Executive Council is politically and financially motivated.
