NCW summons Kerala MLA for using abusive language against nun

No police action has been taken yet against Bishop Franco Mulakkal, who is accused of raping a 44-year-old nun several times between 2014 and 2016.

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

"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.

Coming out as a fresh development in the Kerala nun rape case, the brother of the Kerala nun on Wednesday slammed the accused Bishop and claimed that he was offered Rs 5 crore to withdraw his complaint against the accused Bishop Franco Mullakkal.

On Saturday, a group of nuns staged a sit-in protest at the High Court Junction bus station in Kochi demanding the arrest of the Jalandhar bishop, who is accused of sexually assaulting a nun in Kottayam.

The NCW chief said she will also be writing to Kerala DGP Lokanath Behera to take action against such lawmakers.

"Considering the gravity of the matter, you are hereby required to provide explanation for making such irresponsible comments for which you are required to appear before the commission on Septemer 20", she said in a letter to George. The church later suspended all the priests after a complaint was filed.

However, Poonjar MLA PC George while speaking at a press conference had stirred up fresh controversy regarding the case where he reportedly questioned the nun's character as well as questioned her allegations. The Church said it has submitted video recording of this to police.

The letter surfaced as the protest by various Catholic reform organisations in Kochi seeking justice for the nun entered the fourth day on Tuesday. "So, they are denying the arrest", a nun said. 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".

They have alleged that top police officials were trying to sabotage the probe. "The bishop should be punished", Sharma further said. "This is a time of crisis.I am going through painful agony.I tell everyone to pray to God.let the truth prevail", he said.
