HC to consider Bishop Franco Mulakkal’s bail plea on Thursday
Kochi: The Kerala High Court will consider the bail plea of bishop Franco Mulakkal who was arrested in the nun abuse case on Thursday.
The court has asked the government to clear their stand on the petition which was submitted the other day.
In the bail plea, Franco complained that though he filed the anticipatory bail plea, the police arrested him by violating norms. He added that he has many health problems.
“The arrest was unnecessary. I have cooperated with the probe team. But they are trying to trap me in the case by creating fake evidences,” asserted Franco in his bail plea.
Pala first class judicial magistrate court has remanded him till October 6. At present, he is lodged at the Pala sub jail.
