Sister of the complainant has filed a petition to the state DGP, Kottayam SP and Kalady circle inspector, stating that she and her family are receiving life threats and thus require protection for life and property.

''Due to hatred, brothers of Franco filed fake complaints against me. Thomas Chittuparamban,a relative of Franco threatened to cause danger to my son & brother. One of his relative named Unni took a photo of me protesting & later threatened me,'' said Sister of Kerala nun rape case's victim.

Mulakkal was arrested by the police over allegations of repeatedly raping and sexually assaulting the nun. The bishop was arrested on September 21 after three days of questioning. On Monday, Kerala's Pala judicial magistrate court sent him to judicial custody till October 6.
