Jalandhar Bishop Accused of Raping Kerala Nun Alleges Conspiracy

Jalandhar Bishop Accused of Raping Kerala Nun Alleges Conspiracy

The National Commission for Women (NCW) has summoned Kerala MLA P C George on September 20 for using abusive language against a nun who has alleged that she was sexually assaulted by a bishop.

The bench of the Kerala High Court also wanted to know whether the Bishop was questioned by the team in Jalandhar when it went there about a month ago and directed the police to inform it of the steps taken by it after that.

In the Kerala nun sexual abuse case, the affidavit filed by the state deputy superintendent of police K Subhash states that Bishop Franco Mulakkal had committed unnatural sex against the consent of the nun, reported India Today.

Bishop Mulakkal on his part rejected the charges against him as "baseless and concocted" and said he was open for a probe.

Across Kerala, anger is rising that law enforcement has yet to arrest the bishop, despite multiple accounts against him. "We will fight. It was the church that forced us on to the streets". Anapura, a participant in Saturday's protest.

Florence roars back to hurricane status
North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia have declared states of emergency in preparation for the potential impact of Florence. Florencewill probably create more wind than Hurricane Hugo and more water than Hurricane Matthew, McMaster warned.

"I condemn such disgusting statements made by the MLA". They are using these sisters. "We have charted our plans for the next seven days and would verify and cross-check the evidence against the bishop". Because of that she complained about him. The case has snowballed into something of an worldwide controversy after the victim wrote to the Pope's ambassador in Vatican about how she is being harassed and presssurised to withdraw her complaint. One of the nuns, while slamming the police's inaction in nabbing the accused said, "The police have repeatedly taken the statement of the victim nun, but they have taken Franco Mulakkal's statement only once".

The letter surfaced as the protest by various Catholic reform organisations in Kochi seeking justice for the nun entered the fourth day on Tuesday. The nuns and others are protesting in Kerala against the delay in action against the bishop.

Aneesh Prabhakaran of human rights group Mnushyavakasha Koottayma agreed.

The statement consists of the same allegations that were raised by Franco Mulakkal against the complainant nun during evidence collection.

In her lengthy letter, the nun also sought to explain her silence before coming out against the bishop and said she had "tremendous fear and shame" and wondered why the church was "closing its eyes to the truth".
