Communist Party of India-Marxist state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan mounted a sharp attack on the agitating nuns who have been on a sit-in near the Kerala High Court for the last 13 days. She said she had to approach police because church authorities did not act on her complaints.

Mulakkal, who is the bishop of the northern Indian city of Jalandhar, has denied the accusations. The nun filed a police complaint against Mulakkal after his public relations officer, Fr Peter Kavumpuram, filed a complaint against her brother alleging that he had threatened to kill the bishop.

Sankar told reporters on Friday that the police would now investigate charges of rape, illegal confinement, unnatural sex and intimidation. 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. The statement has also said that the allegations against the bishop are completely baseless.

The bishop is being grilled by a special investigation team at a hi-tech facility at Thripunithura. A bishop is interrogated over a sexual abuse complaint for the first time in India.
