In her complaint lodged with Kottayam district police, the nun accused Mulakkal of raping and having unnatural sex with her multiple times between 2014 and 2016.

A second nun, Sister Anapurna, told local paper the Indian Express, that Bishop Franco has "political clout" in Kerala. On Monday, the Kerala High Court directed the state government to inform it about the steps taken by the special investigation team of the Kerala Police probing the case.

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.

Unlike the rest of India, where Christianity remains a minority religion practiced by just 2.3% of the total population, Kerala is home to a sizable Christian community that dates back hundreds of years.

However, Poonjar MLA PC George while speaking at a press conference had stirred up fresh controversy regarding the case where he reportedly questioned the nun's character as well as questioned her allegations.

In early August, one PIL was filed seeking arrest of the Bishop. Though a police complaint against the bishop was filed over two months ago, he continues to roam free.

The company's research team tweeted out a list of the recent quarters when the GDP has been higher than the unemployment. "I guess I have a magic wand", Trump said , pointing to 4.2 percent GDP growth in the last quarter.

"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".

"I beg the Church authorities to kindly make a speedy enquiry about this case and remove Bishop Franco from his responsibilities as the spiritual leader of the diocese", the nun said.

She made the complaint only after Mullackal went to the police claiming the alleged victim and five other nuns were harassing and blackmailing him. I have seen her being denounced by the church. "I am a law abiding citizen", the Bishop told television channels in Jalandhar.

Anapura noted that Mulakkal has been targeting her group since they declared support for his accuser, saying the bishop is "trying to coerce a statement against the survivor from us".

The legislator's comments were also slammed by the NCW Chief Rekha Sharma who said that the incident was "shameful".

The priest also hit out at those protesting against him. I suffered it silently.
