Arrest not likely soon; Bishop to be quizzed on Wednesday
Kochi: In connection with the sexual allegation raised by a nun against Jalandhar bishop Franco Mulakkal, the investigation team has indicated that the arrest of the bishop is likely to be delayed. The bishop will be interrogated at Vaikom itself.
The investigation team has decided to delay the arrest as the court has given more time to him. The place of interrogation is likely to be shifted from Vaikom, only if there are any security issues.
It is indicated that the interrogation will start on Wednesday at 10 am. The bishop is likely to appear before the investigation team before the time. The police have asked for three days’ time for interrogation.
The high court had adjourned taking up of the anticipatory bail plea filed by the bishop to September 25. It also said that the police can decide on whether they should arrest the bishop or not.
