NEW DELHI Sept 10: Lashing out at Kerala MLA PC George for using ‘abusive language’ against an alleged rape victim, NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma Sunday said such incidents are shameful.

Ms Sharma noted that the commission would be writing to Kerala DGPLokanath Behera to take action against such lawmakers.

The NCW chairperson said the nun was allegedly facing discrimination after levelling sexual assault charges against Jalandhar Bishop Franco Mulakkal and that she was not getting support from the church.

Ms Sharma’s comments come amid reports of Kerala MLAPC George abusing the nun. In his statement, the MLA asked why didn’t the nun report the incident earlier.

In July this year, the nun filed a complaint with the Kottayam district police chief, alleging that Jalandhar Bishop Franco Mulakkal had raped her and had unnatural sex with her multiple times at a small town near Kottayam between 2014 and 2016.

Mulakkal has claimed innocence and said the truth will come out in the police investigation.
