Bishop Franco Mulakkal, accused of rape of Kerala nun, gets bail

Kochi: Bishop Franco Mulakkal accused of raping Kerala nun has been granted conditional bail by the Kerala High Court on Monday.

The High Court has laid down the conditions that Bishop Franco Mulakkal should not enter Kerala and should surrender his passport before the court.

The bail comes after three weeks of his arrest.

The bishop had approched the high court last month after a magistrate’s court in Pala rejected his bail application, in which he stated that he had been implicated for taking action against the nun.

Bishop Mulakkal is currently under judicial remand in a sub-jail in Pala in Kottayam district.

The police had earlier opposed bail on grounds that the case was still progressing after the arrest of Bishop Malakkal on September 21.
