The nun, who admitted to be under huge pressure in her battle against Bishop Franco Mulakkal, said that she was pained by the derogatory comments raised against her by sitting legislator PC George and will not meet the media.

George said that he initially thought that the Bishop Franco Mulackal was at fault but after closely examining the case, he figured out that the nun was a "troublemaker". She demanded whether "Church authorities can give back what I have lost". "The bishop should be punished", Sharma further said. The nuns say they have been denied justice by church authorities and police.

A Kottayam Police Superintendent, SP Hari Sankar, told the paper that they do not have enough evidence to arrest the bishop.

"He is using money to influence everyone", she alleged.

Noting she had filed the complaint against the bishop two months ago, the nun claimed even though the Special Investigation Team probing it was convinced of the proofs, they were not able to arrest him because of his political and economic power. The accused allegedly threatened to disclose the victim's confessions made in church.

"We are fighting for our sister".

"We have got some details from the statement of the nun and police are examining this", he said. "The High Court also directed the government to arrest the accused bishop at the earliest. Why didn't she complain the first time?", reported The News Minute. She also questioned the Church's stand on the matter. The church later suspended all the priests after a complaint was filed. "The police had recorded her statements several times, but the accused Bishop was interrogated only once", the nun said. They (police) are studying it as to who is speaking truth.

The present PILs have been filed alleging that despite the passage of nearly four weeks after the first PIL, no progress has been made in the investigation and that the Bishop was still not arrested. "It is the 76th day since the petition was filed and still police have not taken a major step in the investigation", he said.

He reportedly testified that the local police force will soon be busy with the impeding Sabarimala season and the inter-state nature of the case will require more dedicated investigation.

Backing the accused Bishop, the Congregation alleged that when Franco Mulakkal took disciplinary action against her for her alleged affairs, she had retaliated.
