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.
"More than 70 days have passed since the nun filed a police complaint against the bishop". They took her statement too and there were contradictions.
"Being a religious sister who is denied justice from the congregation authority and from the Church authority of Latin and Syro Malabar Churches, once again I implore your mercy on my situation". She said she had complained earlier because she lacked the courage to take on the clergy represented by the bishop.
In a statement, the congregation questioned the character of the nun and alleged she had illicit relationship with one of her relatives. The Church said it has submitted video recording of this to police.
As the issue snowballed with continuing protests seeking action against Bishop Franco Mulakkal of Jalandhar diocese in Punjab, senior minister E P Jayarajan rejected allegations of attempts to sabotage the case and asserted that the probe was proceeding in the "right direction".
Five nuns joined street protests at the weekend organised by Catholic reform groups claiming the police were dragging their heels in the case.

The priest also hit out at those protesting against him.
