Sexual assault against Bishop: Mother General raises serious allegations against nun
Jalandhar: Serious allegations were raised against the nun who brought out sexual abuse allegations at Jalandhar Bishop Franco Mulakkal. The allegations have been raised by Sister Rejeena Kadamthottu, Mother General of the diocese, in which the nun belongs.
Sister Rejeena told Mathrubhumi News that the she had received a complaint that the nun, who filed complaint against the bishop, had maintained illicit relationship with another person.
The Mother General said that the nun's relative in Delhi submitted the complaint that the nun had illicit relationship with her husband.
In the complaint, the relative alleged that the nun and her husband were involved in an illicit relationship and hence she was on the verge of committing suicide.
As this complaint was beyond her authority, she handed over the complaint to Bishop Franco Mulakkal who heads the Diocese.
“Subsequently, the church conducted a probe over this. But the nun was not ready to cooperate with the probe,” Sister Rejeena said.
She also alleged that the nun has come up with allegations against the Bishop fearing disciplinary action.
“The nun gave the letter raising allegations against the Bishop in June. However, I have not received any such complaints against the Bishop before. Nobody had bad opinion about the Bishop,” Sister Rejeena said.
