Kerala nun rape case : Accused Bishop to be in judicial custody till October 6th

According to the new reports, the rape accused Bishop Franco Mulakkal has been sent to judicial custody till October 6 by Pala Judicial Magistrate Court on Monday. Franco Mulakkal, Bishop of Jalandhar diocese of the Roman Catholic Church had filed a bail petition in the Kerala High Court.

The 54-year-old clergyman was arrested on September 21st finally after they found some incriminating pieces of evidence against Bishop Franco Mulakkal of the Archdiocese of Jalandhar, Punjab, for allegedly raping a nun from Kerala on multiple occasions after the initial delay.

 

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.

We had earlier reported regarding the Congregation’s support to the rape accused Bishop and their reference to him as an ‘innocent soul’. 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’.
