Prime News, National (Kottayam), September 15:- A day after Missionaries of Jesus published a letter and a photo of Kerala rape victim nun, brother of the victim on Saturday condemned the act. He accused the congregation of harassing his sister in the process.
The brother also alleged that the involvement of the Vatican was fake news. News agency ANI quoted him as saying, “It’s being discussed the Vatican is getting involved but I feel it’s fake. It was said they may take two-three days to take action but if they want to take it before Pope, they could take it even today and if they do, they will write and send it to people concerned.”
“So far we have not received a letter like that. So I feel it is a fake news. It may be the handiwork of the culprit and his team in order to weaken the spirit of the protesters in Kerala and other parts of the world,” he added.
This came even as the police said that a notice had been served to the Bishop, adding that he has been summoned to appear before the cops.
Kottayam Superintendent of Police Harshankar said, “Jalandhar Bishop Franco has been served notice to appear for interrogation on September 19.”
Kerala police on Friday had registered a complaint against the Missionaries of Jesus hours after the congregation released a photograph of the nun, who has accused a Bishop of the religious order of rape, seated with her alleged tormentor in violation of the anti-rape law. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
