franco-mulakkal

KOCHI: Another sexual allegation has been levelled against Jalandhar bishop Franco Mulakkal facing trial for sexually abusing a nun. The nun who witnessed the first sexual abuse has now come forward against the bishop for sexually abusing her. In her statement related to the case, she raised the sexual abuse against her.

In her statement, she asserted that he caught her and used lewd dialogues via video call and also forced her to show her body parts. A nun of Missionaries of Jesus gave a statement against him. She told police that she did not lodge a complaint fearing his influence. The police has not registered a case on her allegation. Police said that a case was not registered as she was not interested in moving forward with the complaint.

Meantime, preliminary hearing on Franco’s discharge plea will start on February 22. He had approached the court seeking exemption from the trial in the case of sexually abusing the nun. The bishop did not turn up when the court considered the case in the last four times. If the court rejects the discharge plea of the bishop, his counsel is planning to approach the higher court. The case is considered by the Kottayam district additional sessions court.
