COIMBATORE: Tension prevailed on the premises of Coimbatore Medical College Hospital (CMCH) as relatives of pastor Charles, who committed suicide after accusations of child abuse, refused to accept his body.

The pastor threw himself before the train after Lakshmi, a girl who was staying in his orphanage, lodged a complaint of sexual abuse with district rural police.

On Wednesday, his relatives refused to take back his body after post-mortem demanding further inquiry into the whole episode. Ditto, son of pastor Charles, gave a petition to Rural SP Thenmozhi that his father was ‘‘framed’’ in the case by local politicians, leading to his suicide.
