The St. Thomas Tamil Cathedral Church at Secunderabad and the cemetery will not be touched by the Metro Rail project authorities.
This assurance was given by the Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) officials to the A.P. State Minorities Commission.
Following a complaint that the Metro Rail corridor was passing through the 160-year-old church and graveyard, the commission, headed by Abid Rasool Khan, issued notices to the Managing Director, HMR, and the Commissioner, GHMC.
The HMR official, who appeared before the commission on Monday, promised that the church or the graveyard would not be disturbed. He sought 10 days to file a report detailing the alignment.
