Thrissur:  A 44-year-old Catholic priest, who allegedly raped a 9-year-old girl in Thrissur, Kerala, has been arrested from Nagarcoil in Tamil Nadu. He had been on the run since April 25, after the girl’s family registered a police complaint claiming the priest had sexually assaulted the girl several times in April.

According to the police, the girl was sexually assaulted by the priest thrice in April, after he promised to give her free robes for the Holy Communion. The priest allegedly also took nude photographs of the child on his mobile phone.

The priest has been relieved of his duties by the Thrissur Arch Diocese.

The police have slapped charges under Section-376 (1) of the Indian Penal Code, Section-66 (a) of the IT Act and Section-4 of the Protection of Infants from Sexual Offences Act, 2012, apart from other provisions in the IPC, all of which are non-bailable clauses.

Section-66 (E) of the IT Act has been invoked against the priest for allegedly photographing the girl.

Bombay Laity Ezekiel’s Chapter 3 Task as Watchman 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[b] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.

  1. Conduct an unbiased investigation and should he be found guilty, this pervert needs to be hung. The rape laws in India are now very stringent. Just do it.

    SIn is Sin no matter who did it. When a Hindu God-man commits such sin, Hindus drag him out to the street for cheating the people. But if a Christian God-man commits such sin, we become deaf and dumb, covering up everything. We Catholics never fail to celebrate Justice Sunday, but do we really stand for justice? I appreciate the girl’s family to took immediate action and brought out these immoral acts to the light. Such people should be ousted from the so-called mask ‘Priesthood’, to avoid such cases in future. The Church should take immediate action on this.

    • Mumbailaity is a catholic site and has published the article. Yes you may be referring to other catholic sites who become deaf and dumb and even blind.

    • Hello, Thats the stand all practicing catholics must take. Our “Dharma Gurus” will want, like they always do to sweep the issue under the carpet. I appeal to all concerned catholics to stand up like you have and drag these perverts onto the streets and give them the punishment of the jungle.
