Christians protestNew Delhi, December 4, 2014: With incidents of fire in a church and a break-in attempt at a convent in Delhi, clergy is suggesting equipping churches with CCTVs and private guards.

In another part of Delhi, a local priest has been demanding street-lighting outside his church for several years now, and after Monday’s fire at St. Sebastian Church in Dilshad Garden, he is apprehensive about security of his parishioners.

A Catholic sister said unidentified people tried to break into the convent in Rohini’s Sector 29 on Monday night.

“There are two pet dogs at the convent and both started barking around 12.30am. When a sister got up to check, she heard people talking and immediately called the police,” said the sister.

She added that CCTV footage showed youths with iron rods and torches walking about the compound.

Police have lodged a case under IPC sections 457 (lurking house-trespass or house break-in by night in order to commit offence) and 511 (attempt to commit offence).
