Now a lawmaker said this on nun rape case in Kerala, triggering controversy

nun's family said they would initiate legal action

With the nuns in Kerala now openly protesting to press for action against the Bishop who is accused of raping a nun, it is also evident that the state police has so far failed to make any progress.

The case involves Jaladhar Bishop Franco Mullackal.

But the whole thing got further murkier as an independent lawmaker of Kerala has now come out with derogatory statements on the rape survivor.

The lawmaker PC George questioned the character of the nun.

In her complaint filed at Kuravilangad police station the 46-year-old nun alleged that she was sexually abused 13 times between 2014 and 2016.

The nun’s family said they would initiate legal action against Mr George for hurting her sentiments.

They said that the nun was hurt by George’s abusive charges against her.

This is not the first time that PC George has made callous comments on gender sensitive issues.

The nuns who live along with the complainant in the same hostel also joined the protest and extended their support to her for the first time.

The Kerala police questioned Bishop Mullackal last month.
