Kerala: Nun found dead in a well

Thiruvananthapuram, Sep 9: A 55-year-old nun has been found dead inside a well in Mount Tabor Dayara Convent in Kerala's Kollam, said reports. The incident took place in Pathanapuram.

This comes at a time when several cases of sexual harassment by those associated with Kerala's churches are making headlines.

Yesterday, five nuns joined a public protest in Kochi to demand the immediate arrest of a bishop who has been accused of raping a nun. In June, a nun had complained that Jalandhar Bishop Franco Mulakkal had raped her 13 times, over a period of two years from May 2014. A case was registered by the Kottayam police on June 28, and Mulakkal was questioned last month.
