Indian Nuns: Arrest Rapist Bishop

Indian Catholic nuns protest against bishop accused of rape

Following her complaint, the bishop was booked under Section 376 of Indian Penal Code.

Sources close to the nun, meanwhile, said that she might approach the police against the legislator's comments.

The protesting nuns rejected the charge and said they will continue their agitation till justice was delivered. "Why didn't she complain the first time?" It said bringing the real truth in the case was their "moral and divine" responsibility.

"They are arranging people to attack us and Bishop Franco is using his political power and money to get higher authorities of the investigation and the government to bury legal proceedings that I have filed against him", she charged.

George Joseph, working president of the Joint Christian Council, said the protest was against the state government and police. The nuns and their families are facing mental trauma and continuous pressure from the church, but they are keen to fight for their fellow sister.

Making a fervent plea for urgent intervention, the nun in a scathing letter 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 towards the truth".

The agitators held placards and demanded the arrest of Bishop Franco.

Joining the dharna organised by various Catholic organisations seeking reformation in the church, the nuns alleged that the victim had been denied justice by the authorities and the Church as no action has been initiated against the accused.

The nuns also alleged that police probing the case were trying to sabotage the investigation. George said there wasn't any doubt that the nun is a prostitute as she had enjoyed the act for 12 times but the 13th time she alleged it as rape.

Five nuns from the convent in Kuravilangad, who are supporting the complainant, protested outside the Kerala High Court, seeking justice.

Terming the language used by the MLA as "deeply disturbing", NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma said the Commission seriously condemns "such objectionable and derogatory statements made by a person who occupies responsible position in the society".

The priest also hit out at those protesting against him. The Kottayam district police chief also directed the head of the SIT to record the survivor's statement.

George said that he initially thought that the Bishop Franco Mulackal was at fault but after closely examining the case, he figured out that the nun was a "troublemaker".

Earlier, it was revealed that the accused Bishop Franco Mulakkal committed unnatural offence and committed rape repeatedly on the nun against her will.
