She was protesting against the bishop and was demanding justice for herself.

Terming the language used by the MLA as "deeply disturbing", NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma said the Commission seriously condemns "such objectionable and derogatory statements made by a person who occupies responsible position in the society". I have seen her being denounced by the Church.

But supporters of the Missionaries of Jesus nun are vowing to keep up the pressure.

"If I am found guilty, which I am not, I am likely to be punished.I will appear before police if I am summoned".

The district police chief is known to have pointed out that extensive evidence collation and investigation were required in the case.

"They are arranging people to attack us, and bishop Franco is using his political power and money to get higher authorities of the investigation and the government to bury legal proceedings that I have filed against him", the nun charged.

George Joseph, the president of the Joint Christian Council, one of the groups organising the protests, accused senior politicians and church leaders of interfering in the case.

The letter surfaced as the protest by various Catholic Reform organisations in Kochi seeking justice for the nun entered fourth day Tuesday.

Responding to two pleas, the court asked the police to clarify if the Bishop was questioned and what steps had been taken after the police questioning.

As per a report from ANI, the nun also described the ordeal she allegedly went through at the hands of the bishop, as well as the trauma that she has been facing ever since she spoke about the abuse.

"Though Bishop Franco had sexually abused me several times, I could not reveal the full story to my Superior General or to her Councilors".

The police also dismissed protesters allegations that they were biased in any way and said that there were a "lot of contradictions" in the statements given by the nun, witnesses and accused Bishop Franco Mulakkal of Jalandhar diocese and that a decision on further action would be taken after clearing all the doubts. "Investigation should be completed quickly and the culprits should be given punishment as prescribed in the law", he told reporters in Kochi.

In the September 8 letter, a copy of which is available with the media, she alleged that the bishop and his associates were luring people to take a stand supportive of them by assuring them properties and other forms of wealth. "A very strong investigation is being carried out in the case".
