Kerala police have registered a rape case against another priest belonging to the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, which is already reeling under allegations of sexual abuse against four of its priests. When she revealed this to another priest, he allegedly also started abusing her and passed the information to three other priests. "It is for the police to find them", said father John.
The alleged crime was registered on July 2 this year after a senior police officer conducted a preliminary investigation.
The complainant's husband said he came to know about the abuse in February this year when he noticed a suspicious bank statement about a hotel transaction in his wife's email inbox. "The victim in her statement emphatically asserted that the consent was not unequivocal or voluntary", the judge said. She was threatened even after her marriage and sexually abused.
