Kerala nun rape: Bishop Franco gets bail
October 15, 2018  11:29
Kerala high court on Monday granted bail to Bishop Franco Mulakkal, arrested on charges of repeatedly raping and sexually assaulting a nun.

Earlier, his bail plea was rejected by a lower court.

The HC has laid down conditions that Mulakkal should not enter Kerala and should surrender his passport to the court.

The bishop was arrested on September 21, days after a nun had alleged that he raped her at a guest house in Kuravilangad in May 2014 and later sexually exploited her on several occasions.

However, the bishop has denied the charges.  -- Agencies
