Says no other injury marks on the body except “self-inflicted” injuries on wrists
The nun whose body was found inside the well of a convent in Kollam district had drowned, the post-mortem report stated on Monday.
There were no other injury marks on the body of Sister Susamma, a resident of Mount Tabor Dayara at Pathanapuram, except the ‘self-inflicted’ injuries on the wrists, the police said, quoting the report.
The post-mortem examination of the nun, belonging to the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, was carried out at the government medical college hospital here.
A senior police officer said that based on the post-mortem report, it was assumed to be a case of suicide. “The post-mortem report also indicated the presence of naphthalene balls in her abdomen. Both the wrists were cut. There were no other injury marks on her body,” he said.
The police would soon submit a report based on the post-mortem report, the officer added. The body of Sister Susamma, a teacher at St. Stephen’s School attached to the convent, was found floating in the well at the compound on Sunday morning.
Local media quoted her relatives as saying that the nun was ailing and was depressed for some time. The police have registered a case of unnatural death .
