In the State of Kerala in Indian, a Catholic bishop has been accused of sexual assault.
The allegations came from a nun who works with the bishop in the local diocese.
Bishop Mulakkal, the accused, denies any wrongdoing in the matter as he has been called in by the police for a second round of questioning.
His accuser revealed that she sent several letters to the Vatican asking for their intervention, but none was forthcoming. She has now decided to take the matter to the court of public opinion and with the support of her colleagues, will seek the arrest of the bishop for his sexual misconduct.
Bishop Mulakkal has launched his own attack on the nun, claiming she is promiscuous and lacks the integrity and character of her vocation.
