He got to the church only to find Uwaila in a pool of blood and next to her was the fire extinguisher which was used to bash her face.
He ran back to inform the key keeper and his wife, who went to the church to meet her lifeless, thinking she was dead. After careful observation, they noticed she moved her hand and quickly rushed her to the hospital.
I just spoke with the governor..the death of Vera Uwaila won't be swept under the carpet..if someone could have the nerve to come kill a girl inside the church, then there would be consequences..if there are mad men,there are psychiatric doctors..
