"My initial information is that today at 8 am, she had a talk with the matron saying she doesn't want to attend the prayers as she was feeling unwell. She had also visited the doctor earlier. This is just the initial information emerging. We have to verify all of this," a top police official told NDTV.
The 54-year-old nun was teaching at St. Stephens School in Kollam's Pathanapuram, about 80 km from the state capital Thiruvananthapuram.
At around 9 am, workers at the Mount Tabor Convent saw blood stains near the well say reports. Later they found the body floating in the well.
