Another Convent Attacked and Looted in Bihar
PATNA, India, JUNE 22, 2005 (Zenit.org).- A few days after the Indian Catholic episcopate appealed to the authorities for protection against attacks on Church personnel, another convent came under siege in the state of Bihar.

Early Tuesday, 10 assailants armed with guns and other weapons attacked the Chetanalaya Center run the by Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in Rajgir, a tourist township in the Nalanda district in central Bihar, some 100 kilometers (62 miles) from Patna, the state capital.

According to the women religious, the looters took valuables and about $560 in cash.

"I was sleeping on the terrace along with 11 handicapped girls, who had stayed back during vacation," said Sister Rose Plathottam, directress of Chetanalya. "At about 11 p.m. some 10 youths carrying guns and other weapons entered our convent ? after climbing a wall."

"Seeing nobody downstairs, they ransacked the convent in a bid to get hold of the keys to the rooms. Later they came up to the terrace, threatened me with a gun and dragged me to the ground floor," said the woman religious. Then they asked her for her mobile phone and cash, she added.
