THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The investigation team said that crucial evidences have been found to arrest Jalandhar bishop Franco Mulackal in the complaint given by the nun. Earlier, there were conflicts in the statements of the nun and witnesses. However, this was solved during investigation. Three of the 81 statements recorded from the witnesses can be used to prove that the bishop has committed the crime. Therefore, the investigation team hints that the arrest of Jalandhar bishop is essential when he arrives before the investigation team for interrogation on September 19.


The nun had alleged that she was sexually abused when the bishop arrived at the convent in Kuruvilangad in Thrissur. Bishop claimed that he was not present at Kuruvilangad during this time. However, it was found that he had visited the convent on May 5, 2014 when the investigation team checked the visitors’ register. No evidence has been found to support his claim that he was at Muthalakkulam convent during this time. Meanwhile, the investigation team has obtained another crucial information from Franco’s driver. The driver said that he had reached Kuruvilangad convent on May 5, 2014 from Thrissur with Jalandhar bishop. He also said that they had stayed in the convent with the bishop.


Meantime, the nun has given explanation to the suspicion that she had not mentioned about the sexual abuse in the complaint lodged to cardinal. She said that several people were with her while she typed the complaint and therefore she excluded the details about the sexual abuse as she feared that they will become aware of this. With this there is no more conflict in the nun’s statement.


Meantime, the nuns who are protesting responded that they are happy to hear that the bishop may be arrested soon. They are protesting for the last eight days seeking bishop’s arrest at Ernakulam.
