Tiruchirapalli: Nun Says College Principal Raped Her

October 12, 2010

Tiruchirapalli: A case has been lodged against a college principal in Tiruchirapalli for allegedly raping a nun several times over a period of two years since 2006.

The woman, in her complaint, said the man who used to visit the college where she was doing her graduation in music, once invited her to his college.

On her first visit to the college on January 22, 2006, the principal allegedly offered her a drink mixed with drugs and raped her repeatedly, she said in her complaint.

He also recorded the incident on his cell phone and threatened to make it public if she disclosed the matter to anyone.

The complainant said she became pregnant in 2008, but was forced to undergo an abortion at a private hospital. The principal had threatened her with dire consequences several times and sexually harassed her, she said.

Though she had complained about him to the relevant authorities at the Society of Jesus, no action had been taken so far, she said.

The case was registered at an all women's police station and the woman was sent for medical examination, police said.
