Indian woman says 3 priests raped her

Fr Job Mathew (40) of Panthaplavu turned up at Kollam city police assistant commissioner's office in the morning at around 10.30am and surrendered.

He was taken into custody from Kollam (south Kerala) and efforts are on to nab three others, police said.

The Kerala Police have filed a rape case against another priest of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, PTI reported on Tuesday.

"Now the accused priests have finally surrendered". The priest was transferred to another parish, but, the complaint said, he continued to send lewd messages to the woman and she eventually approached police. When she revealed this to another priest, he allegedly also started abusing her and passed the information to three other priests. She was threatened even after her marriage and sexually abused.

"The Kerala high court on Wednesday rejected the anticipatory bail petitions of three priests of a church accused of raping a woman, observing they acted as "predators" and took "undue advantage" of her".

"The reasonable possibility of the accused managing to obstruct the course of justice, if released at this stage, can not be brushed aside", it said.

The victim - a mother of two - alleged one of her distant relatives Father Varghese had sexually assaulted her first when she was a minor.

In their bail applications, the priests had rejected the woman's allegations of sexually assaulting her. They alleged that the case was registered against them "solely at the instance of the political pressure exerted by certain vested interests to derive political mileage". It is also possible that the priests may surrender in court or in front of the investigation team, according to India Today. He is accused of sexually exploiting the woman after blackmailing her using the secrets she confided in him during confession.
