  Stating that no man can hear “the things that my wife has told me, and today those things are being discussed in public”, the husband of the victim who was sexually abused, allegedly by four church priests over years, now wants the accused to be defrocked — dismissed as priests.

“I am a devout Christian, and in our religion priests are said to be the ‘prathi-purushan’ of Christ. They deliver the holy mass to our laymen. But some priests are destroying the right to be one by engaging in dirty activities.

On Monday, Kerala Police’s Crime Branch booked Abraham Varghese and Job Mathew of Niranam diocese, Johnson V Mathew of Thumpamon diocese, and Jaise K George of Delhi diocese on charges of rape based on the victim’s complaint and has begun investigation.

In his complaint to the church submitted on May 7, the man alleged that the priests sexually exploited his wife by blackmailing her over a confession she had made to one of the priests nearly a decade ago. Alias P C, the church spokesperson, said, “Our inquiry commission is continuing the probe alongside the Crime Branch investigation. They (priests) stand suspended as of now and if the allegations are found to be true, they will be defrocked from the church.”
