She had led, for over a decade beginning 1995, a people’s movement against the displacement of tribals in Pachuwara and nearby areas for a project of Panem Coal Ltd. In 2006, she intervened to get the villagers to call off the protest after the company — which mines and supplies coal to government-owned thermal power plants outside Jharkhand — agreed to meet their demands.

Sonaram Hembrom, the owner of the house in which John lived, said in the FIR that a group of around 50 people armed with lathis, hockey sticks and axes had attacked the nun. “Around 25 people waited outside, while an equal number entered her bedroom,” he said.
