The rape accused was produced in the court on Monday after his bail application was rejected and he was sent to police custody till 24th September. The Pala court heard his petition today and has extended his police custody till October 6th.

The Kerala Police during today’s hearing at the court also revealed its remand report on the Bishop. In the remand report, the police said before the court that Bishop Mulakkal went to the convent with the intention of sexually assaulting the victim. “On May 5, 2014, he illegally confined her in room number 20 of the guest house at around 10:48 pm and subjected the victim to unnatural sex”, the remand report added further.

The police officials also revealed that the Bishop had threatened the nun with consequences if she ever revealed about the sexual abuse.

Apart from this, an independent MLA from Kerala, PC George had called the nun who has accused the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Jalandhar, Franco Mulakkal, of having raped her, is a ‘prostitute’.
