Kochi: A group of protestors spearheading the agitation for the arrest of Bishop Franco Mulakkal, accused of rape and unnatural sex by a nun, has alleged that the delay in arresting the cleric 'is sheer subversion of the law'. He was questioned for the third successive day on Friday. "The Kerala police have arrested him due to the pressure of protesting nuns". The Kerala Police registered a case against Missionaries of Jesus after the nun's brother filed a complaint.

The Vatican's decision was welcomed by the nuns protesting against Mulakkal, reported PTI.

The Punjab Christian United Front, however, cited the bishop's arrest as one made under pressure and condemned the distribution of candies. "They are forcing people to hit the streets to press for justice".

"I think her allegations are false and baseless as we have strict rule that no one can meet anyone from the opposite gender in the congregation alone", she said.

What does the police have to say?

Three teams are probing Fr Mulakkal, who has been accused of raping a nun 13 times over a period of two years at different places. After the protests were first launched, the Kerala High Court on September asked the police to submit a report on the action that has been taken since the complaint was lodged. However, the police reportedly submitted an affidavit which states that investigations so far reveal that the bishop had abused his position of power and raped the nun multiple times between 2014 and 2016.
