Peravoor sexual abuse case: Priest taken into custody
Peravoor (Kannur): Police have taken into custody the priest who impregnated a Plus One student here.
A police team led by Peravoor circle inspector N Sunil Kumar nabbed Fr. Robin Vadakkumchery (48), a priest at Neendunokki St. Sebastians Church in Kottiyoor. Fr. Vadakkumcherry is also the manager of IJM higher secondary school in Kottiyoor.
Robin was taken into custody from Chalakudy while he was trying to escape to a foreign country. The arrest will be recorded on Tuesday.
The girl had given birth to a baby boy at Christhu Raj hospital near Koothuparamba 20 days back. Allegations have been raised against the hospital for concealing the incident of the minor girl’s delivery.
It is said that some influential people coerced the family of the girl and hushed up the incident. They also shifted the baby to an orphanage.
Upon investigation, the police found the baby in an orphanage run by nuns at Vythiri in Wayanad. The baby has been shifted to a government run orphanage in Kannur on Monday.
