    The police have booked Father Thomas Thanninilkumthasathil, the vicar of St Matthews Church, Perumthuruthu, who is since missing.

    The lady said in her complaint that he befriended her on Facebook and invited her to visit Kerala. I came to Kaduthuruthy on December 31 and stayed there for a week, she also said.

    She then left for Mumbai on February 7 from where she went to London on January 12. She came back in February and registered a complaint on Wednesday.

    Circle inspector K P Thomson said the priest allegedly raped her during her first visit. We are verifying the details, he also said. The complainant said that the priest had also stolen her diamond ring, gold ornaments and mobile phone. Pending investigation, the Pala diocese has taken away the priestly responsibilities from the accused.
