Kunnamkulam: A priest of Mar Thoma Church and his wife were attacked by a man for supporting a love marriage. The arrested person is Wilson (53), hailing from Kunnamkulam in Thrissur.

Arthat Mar Thoma Church Vicar Father Joby and his wife Shiny were attacked by the accused at their house in Kunnamkulam. Back in July 2022, father Joby mediated the love marriage of Wilson's daughter with a youth in the area. The family did not attend the marriage and openly opposed it. Following this, he protested in front of father Joby's residence.

On Sunday, Wilson visited the residence of father Joby and created a ruckus. Father Joby was attacked when he tried to stop Wilson from abusing his family and vandalising the property. Wilson also attacked Shiny, leaving both the couple seriously injured. They were rushed to a private hospital after the church committee members arrived at the scene.
