They also transferred the priest to another parish, but he allegedly continued to send her lewd messages, The Indian Express reported.

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.

An Indian court on Wednesday refused pre-arrest bail to three church priests in a rape case filed by a woman in southern India. In their bail applications, the priests rejected the woman's allegations that they had sexually assaulted her.

They claimed the case was registered against them exclusively "under political pressure exerted by certain vested interests to derive political mileage". He is accused of sexually exploiting the woman after blackmailing her using the secrets she confided in him during confession.

The name of the fifth clergyman was not included for want of substantial evidence.

Veteran CPI (M) leader and chairman of Kerala Administrative Reforms Commission V S Achuthanandan and the National Commission for Women had written to State DGP Loknath Behara, demanding a probe into the charges.
