People from various fishermen's hamlets in this district today picketed the residence of the Bishop Ivan Ambrose to protest against the sacking of a priest of church at Punnakayal.

The priest of Punnakayal Church, A V Santhanam was sacked for allegedly violating the code of conduct.

Police said they held conciliatory talks between the locals and the bishop during which the latter assured that he would talk to them about it.

The locals then gave up the picketing and said they would decide on the future course of action after talks with the Bishop.
