Kerala Church sex scandal: SC extends protection to two clergymen

The Supreme Court has said the protection from arrest granted to two clergymen in connection with the alleged sexual abuse of a married woman will continue till it pronounces the verdict on their anticipatory bail.
 
A bench of Justices A K Sikri and Ashok Bhushan reserved its verdict in the case after the counsels for the accused and the state government presented their arguments during an in-camera hearing.

Earlier today, a bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra granted the request for an in-camera trial by the counsel for the accused. On July 17, the apex court had asked the Kerala police not to arrest Father Sony Verghese and Father Jaise K George attached to the Malankara Syrian Orthodox Church in connection with the sex scandal till July 19.
The clergymen had moved the apex court seeking anticipatory bail in the case after their plea was rejected by Kerala High Court on July 11. Four priests attached to the Malankara Syrian Orthodox Church are accused of sexually abusing a 34-year-old married woman by using her confessional statement.
