As pressure mounts on Kerala police to arrest Jalandhar Bishop Franco Mulackal on charges of raping a nun, Poonjar MLA PC George triggered a controversy with shocking comments on the victim’s “character”.
George dubbed the victim a ‘prostitute’ who initially‘enjoyed’ and later reported it as rape.
“No one has doubt that the nun is a prostitute. 12 times she enjoyed it and the 13th time it is rape? Why didn’t she complain the first time?” the news agency ANI quoted him as saying.
In her complaint filed in June at Kuravilangad Police Station, the victim had alleged that she had received death threats from unknown people two months ago. The nun has accused Bishop Franco of raping and having unnatural sex with her multiple times between 2014 and 2016.
