Kerala: Priest who spoke against child sex abuse arrested for allegedly raping 17-year-old girl

Kerela: A 48-year-old Catholic priest has been arrested in Kochi for raping a 17-year-old girl in 2016, which gave birth to a child a few weeks ago. Father Robin Vaddakumchiryil, vicar of St Sebastian church in Kottiyoor, has been sent to judicial custody for 14 days.

The priest allegedly got the baby admitted to a facility in Wayanad. Ironically, the accused was known for speaking publicly against child sex abuse. Police said that the parents had not filed a complaint. But based on a tip-off received by the child helpline, they carried out an initial probe and found the report to be true. Now the police have filed a case of rape against the priest.

Besides, a case has also been registered against a private hospital, for conducting the delivery without informing the police.
