KOTTAYAM, INDIA — A Catholic nun, who two years ago accused Bishop Franco Mulakkal of Jalandhar of rape, started giving her testimony Wednesday in a district court in the southwestern Indian state of Kerala.
Her testimony will continue Thursday before the nun faces cross-examination by the defense lawyer.
Amid heavy rains, the closed door session in the District and Sessions Court in Kottayam lasted from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Before the trial started, court officials closed all doors and windows and put up pink window curtains to keep the proceedings away from public view.
