The order was passed in the archbishop's petition seeking police protection for his safety as well as for smooth ingress and egress to the Major Archbishop's House in Ernakulam.

Justice Anu Sivaraman, while listing the matter for hearing on December 8 said, "In the meanwhile, in case of any overt acts against the life of the petitioner, the petitioner may inform the Station House Officer who shall take appropriate steps to see that adequate protection is granted to the life of the petitioner." 

Thazhath has sought protection from Athirupatha Samrakshana Samithi and the Almaya Munnetta Samithi and "their henchmen", and removal of "miscreants/outsiders" from the premises of Major Archbishop's House. The court issued notice to the two respondents.
