Kochi: Disowning the protesting nuns, Missionaries of Jesus, the congregation to which the nuns belong, strongly condemned the protested staged by them against rape accused Jalandhar bishop Franco Mulakkal.

"The Church leadership should seriously address the allegations raised by the nun", he said.

The nun, who admitted to be under enormous pressure in her battle against Bishop Franco Mulakkal, said that she was pained by the derogatory comments raised against her by sitting legislator PC George and will not meet the media.

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, in a protest organised by the joint Christian Council, the nuns and other protesters marched in protest to the High Court in Kochi, Kerala, holding placards and banners, UCAN news reports.

The complaint filed was that the bishop raped and assaulted the nun for two years since 2014 May.

Musk decision to smoke pot shows CEO dazed and confused by tone
Recreational marijuana is legal in California , but Musk had previously dismissed questions about whether he used the drug. Musk's behavior is also a violation of Tesla company policy, which prohibits the use of illegal drugs.

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

Noting that she felt the Catholic church was still doubting her over the argument as to why she allowed him to sexually abuse her multiple times, the nun said she had tremendous fear and shame to bring this out into the open.

"I feel there are people who are against the church, they are using these sisters". She said she had complained earlier because she lacked the courage to take on the clergy represented by the bishop.

The five nuns of Missionaries of Jesus are determined to get justice. "Your highness, I would like to ask: Will the Church authority -who stand to protect Bishop Franco and safeguard the dignity of the Church by hiding his wickedness- be able to give back what I have lost?" she asked in the letter. In a detailed and emotional seven-page letter dated September 8, 2018 - released to the media on Tuesday - the nun wondered whether the "Catholic Church has concern only for bishops and priests. We suspect nuns have been forced into the protest by external influence".

Copies of the letter were sent to 21 others, including the Catholic Bishops Conference of India (CBCI) President Cardinal Oswald Gracias and Delhi Metropolitan Archbishop, Anil Couto. Police have questioned him on August 13 but failed to arrest him and to any further probe in the matter.

Terming the allegations against him as "serious", the bishop said only three persons knew the truth. I suffered it silently.
