Jalandhar bishop back in soup, charge of bid to ‘kill’ nun

The flood that devastated Kerala around a fortnight ago appeared to have given Jalandhar Bishop Franco Mulakkal ‘relief’. But a recent complaint of the nun of a bid to kill her has brought the issue in spotlight.

The probe team that quizzed Franco in Jalandhar on August 14 in the case regarding the raping of a nun and returned with a claim of having clinched ‘incriminating’ evidence did not appear to have gone further after the flood fury.

According to the complaint which is being probed by Kuruvilangad police, a migrant worker in the convent was allegedly hired by a relative Franco to kill the nun. He is said to have been paid to cut the brakes of the two-wheeler used by the nun.

According to the complaint made on Monday, the brother of a priest close to Franco made the offer to the labourer.

It is said the labourer was also asked to keep a tab on the movements of the nun. However, the pressure on him was too much, forcing him to spill the beans before the nuns which led to the complaint.
