Police security up for Kerala convent

Kottayam, July 22: The police have stepped up protection to a convent near here which is home to a nun who had alleged that she was sexually abused by a Catholic bishop. “The increased police protection has been given after the police team probing her complaint asked for it,” said the official who did not wish to be identified. Trouble began for Franco Mulakkal, the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Jalandhar (Punjab) in June when the nun alleged that she was sexually abused by him several times between 2014 and 2016.
