Amritsar, July 14

Members of a local Christian organisation raised concern over the cancellation of bail of Bishop Franco Mulakkal, accused of raping a nun, by the Kottayam Additional District Court on Monday. Office-bearers of the Christian Action Committee claimed as the bishop was home quarantined so he did not attend the court hearing.

Christen leader Rohit Khokhar said the whole country was fighting a war against the novel coronavirus. If a person violates the home quarantine the police take action against him.

Jatinder Gaurav alleged it was media’s propaganda that the Bishop did not appear in the court 13 times despite the rejection of his petition. “The Bishop was quarantined from July 6, so he did not appear in the court. — TNS
