After Sexual Abuse Allegations Against 5 Kerala Priests, Kottayam Nun Claims Bishop Assaulted Her

Days after five Kerala priests were accused of sexually assaulting and blackmailing a woman, a nun on Saturday filed a complaint alleging that she was sexually abused by a bishop. The Kottayam Police have registered a complaint based on the complaint of the nun. Denying the charges, the bishop filed a counter complaint against the nun alleging that she was taking revenge against him for transferring her, news agency ANI reported.

The alleged assault incident has come a few days after a woman’s husband alleged that his wife’s confession to one of the accused priests was supposed to be a secret but was rather used to blackmail her.
